Last week, after news of Steve's tragic death broke, Elizabeth's only son shared a picture of a gorgeous sunset and penned a heartfelt message in which he revealed it was a "very strange and confusing time" for him.

Damian, who had never met his father, wrote: "Thank you from the bottom of my heart to everyone that has reached out following the devastating news. I'm trying to reply to as many of you as I can, but please know I will always remember your kindness. This is a very strange and confusing time and I'm immensely grateful to be surrounded by my phenomenal family and friends."

Despite not having met him, a day after his passing, Elizabeth took to social media to share some personal snaps of her and Steve together taken during their brief relationship and revealed that they had last spoken on Damian's 18th birthday.

Elizabeth, 55, concluded her message: "In the past year we had become close again. We last spoke on our son's 18th birthday. This is devastating news and I thank everyone for their lovely messages."
