It comes after Kelsey revealed Aurelia is ‘very confused’ by Tom’s death and believes he is on tour.

She admitted the two-year-old ‘doesn’t quite get that he’s not coming back’, even after being ‘really blunt’ and telling her ‘he’s dead’, while speaking on Lorraine.

Kelsey said: ‘Whenever she sees pictures of her dad, she’s like, “It’s my dad!” She’ll be three at the end of this month.

‘I’ve been really honest, she does still talk about him every day, she doesn’t quite understand he’s not coming back.

‘So I’ve had to be really blunt and say he’s not coming back, that’s it, he’s dead and he’s not coming back because she doesn’t really understand.

‘She’s just really confused by it. She thinks he’s on tour. But we do then talk about him every day. She does ask me every day about him.

Oh no: She admitted the two-year-old 'doesn't quite get that he's not coming back', even after being 'really blunt' and telling her 'he's dead'

‘He wouldn’t want us to be sad. It’s lonely at night, but I have to live my life. We have been through so much together. The love I had for him was like no other.

‘I find it hard that I can’t text or call him to tell him things. I have lost the love of my life.’

The Glad You Came hitmaker posthumously released his memoir, Hope: My Inspirational Life, in May, reaching number one in the Sunday Times best seller list.

Kelsey said: ‘The book has had two weeks at number one. He wanted to make sure it was a bestseller and it is. He lived life really quick.

‘We lived in hope that is how we got through each day. How do you live life with that diagnosis? But we tried our best to find the light.’ 

On the support from the public following Tom’s passing, she said: ‘Everyone has a story about him and they loved him.

‘I couldn’t even read all the messages that I got. I was so lucky to have him as a husband.’
