In a new post, Jessica said: "It still doesn't feel real. The sadness is huge. I can't even let myself think what another week without Jonnie will be like let alone another year another 10 years. 

"I have been truly touched by all the support from friends and strangers. But nothing compares to how I have been picked up by my family and Jonnies sisters, your support and love means everything to me. '

"I am loving watching the boys enjoy some days in the sun and having a change of scene is just what we needed."

A message he made last summer, addressed to his boys, said: "Family first, always look after your family. Your brothers, your mother... Put them first. Support them, love them, and know that they're so much more important than anyone else."

He told Hello! magazine: "I want them to believe they can do anything… I want them to be confident, but believe in yourselves, because you can do anything… I've seen their capabilities and they're boundless."
