"Thank you to your family and friends for allowing me to post my respects.

"My heart is broken, for you, for your family, friends and the boys. Fly high my angel. Life is so short. I love you. Kelly x."

A friend, who was also Jehane's former hairdresser said the social media star was "one of the most beautiful people inside and out", and the "best mummy I’ve had the privilege to have walk through my salon doors".

Another mourner added: "I can’t tell you that I’m in shock to learn that my friend Jehane Thomas has suddenly passed away.

"I first met her at a previous job and we was in the same team. Then she was the person that introduced me to my now home based travel business.

"We have been to many events together and I know she will be sadly missed by those that knew her. Sending all my love to her family and especially her two boys."

Meanwhile her friend Jade Newby said that Jehane's passing "puts life into perspective even more".

A GoFundMe page set up by Alyx to raise money for Jehane's funeral and support her "beautiful boys" is already close to hitting its goal of £10,000.
