Fans of the star were quick to show their support and replied to her message. One wrote: "So sorry for your loss. Heartbreaking news condolences to you and your family," while another said: "Sending you & Flame big hugs Tina. When you did interviews you both came across so down to earth & relatable."

Tina and Paul got married in 2010 and had their first child, Flame Chase, three years later when Tina was 50. They split up after being married for nine years, but they had been together for 11 years.

However in February 2020, they announced they were back together again and happier than ever.

At the time of Paul's funeral, his family said their final farewells to him in his hometown of Liverpool. Clad in black, Tina cut a solemn figure as she led the procession of mourners from her home, with family, friends, and members of Paul's regiment in attendance, many donning regimental ties.

Tina's - who also starred in Brookside - recent post comes after she revealed she has been left 'broken' and 'so bereft' as she recounted the last moments with her late husband.
