Celebrity pals including Patsy Kensit, Neighbour’s star Natalie Imbruglia, Densie Van Outen, Elton John’s partner David Furnish and Sam Worthington’s model wife Lara offered support to Hurley. It came as the model posted seven intimate photos of the couple in happier times on Instagram.

Hurley, aged 56, wrote: “I feel like the sun has gone behind a cloud forever. RIP my beloved Lionheart”. It accompanied photos of them arm in arm on the beach, holding hands at cricket events and holding a lamb at a farm.

David Furnish replied to the tribute quickly. He wrote: “Desperately sad. Such a terrible loss. Sending all my love and condolences to you and Damian. Love, D xo.”

Lethal Weapon 3 actress Patsy Kensit and Lara Worthington sent their love too with heart emojis in response. Natalie Imbruglia added: “I’m so sorry” with a broken heart image.

It was during their engagement in 2012 that the couple bought the Georgian mansion with 13 bedrooms, five bathrooms and its own lake, where the actress and model now mainly lives and spent lockdown with her mum Angela and sister Kate.
