In a lengthy caption, Kym wrote: '25 years!!!!! 25 years since you made our worlds a brighter place to be! You are and always have been our sunshine! You always loved every second of life!

'Like a little whirlwind of fun sweeping through every room you walked into. You still are. You draw people to you, you make people smile, you make people angry too hahah but you are one of the funniest and kindest people I know!

'You have such a good heart Emilie. You would absolutely turn yourself inside out to help others and I know that only too well of late especially.

'I won’t ever forget the love and constant support you have given to me, particularly these last few months, whether that’s helping take care of Polly while I work, calling into rehearsals late at night with treats to cheer me up cos you know I’m tired, or cooking endless meals for me and @grazianodiprima and making him welcome in your home and your life.
