Simon Cowell has reached out to X Factor star Tom Mann following the heartbreaking loss of his late fiancée.
Tom announced the devastating passing of his late partner Danielle Hampson earlier this week, prompting fans to send their support to the singer.
Among those sharing their condolences to Tom, 28, was Simon Cowell, who was both a judge and creator of the British singing competition show.
Simon, 62, has sent his sympathies to Tom and his family and confirmed to TMZ that he will 'personally reach out to him'.
Simon told the outlet: "As a father myself, I simply cannot imagine the heartbreak Tom and his family are going through and will be personally reaching out to him.
"From my family to his, we extend our deepest condolences and all of our love during this tragic time."
Tom, who rose to fame as part of the boyband Stereo Kicks in the 2014 series, announced that his partner tragically died on what was meant to be their wedding day on Saturday, 18 June.
Danielle's cause of death has not been publicly announced.
Tom shared a black-and-white image of his fiancée and their eight-month-old son Bowie on Instagram, explaining that he feels 'completely broken' after his partner's passing.
"I can’t believe I am writing these words but my darling Dani - my best friend, my everything and more, the love of my life - passed away in the early hours of Saturday morning, 18th June," he said.
"On what was supposed to be the happiest day of our lives ended in irreversible heartbreak.
"I feel like I have cried an ocean. We never made it to the [altar]; or got to say our vows, or dance our first dance, but I know you know that you were my entire world and the best thing that has ever happened to me, Danielle.
He wrote: “I will wear this ring that I was always supposed to wear as a sign of my unconditional love to you.
"I am completely broken trying to process this and I honestly don’t know where to go from here, but I do know I need to use any strength I can muster for our little boy."
He went on to promise to teach their young son all about his 'amazing' mum and vowed to stay strong for him.
He said: "I will not be a mark on the parent that you had already become but I promise I will do my everything to raise Bowie just the way we always wanted. I promise you he will know how amazing his mummy was. I promise to make you so so proud."
