Bachelorette Georgia Love has confirmed that her mother, Belinda Love, has passed away from pancreatic cancer aged 60.


The 28-year-old took to Instagram to post a touching tribute to her late mother, saying:

‘My heart is utterly broken. 7 weeks ago we were sipping cocktails in Italy. 7 months ago you weren’t even sick. How is it possible you’re no longer here? Mum, you were my first friend and my best friend, my rock, the one who knew me better than anyone in the world and who supported and backed me through every single thing I did,’

‘You were the one I went to for advice, the one I shared every story with and the one who was always there to pick me up. There is so much more I need and want to share with you. I have no idea how to even begin to say goodbye. I love you, Mum, and will continue to every single day. “If there ever comes a day when we can’t be together, keep me in your heart. I’ll stay there forever.”’

Belinda  was admitted to palliative care the week before The Bachelorettte finale was due to air, and her death comes just days after Georgia and her winner, Lee Elliot, announced their relationship.

We’re sending all our love to Georgia and her family during this difficult time.
