X Factor star Tom Mann shared a sweet picture with his son Bowie and a pal – a year and a half after the death of his fiancée Danielle Hampson.
Singer Tom, 29, was left heartbroken last year after his wife-to-be and mother of their son Bowie died suddenly on the morning of their wedding day.
The hitmaker now appears to be getting some support from Peloton instructor Leanne Hainsby – who is engaged and close to the family.
Leanne shared the same photo to her Instagram Stories and captioned it with three heart emojis.
The pair looked in good spirits as they posed for the camera while wrapped up in winter coats.

Singer Tom, 29, was left heartbroken last year after his wife-to-be Danielle (pictured) died suddenly on the morning of their wedding day
It comes a year and a half after Danielle tragically passed away on the day of her and Tom’s wedding.
Tom had just returned from a holiday with PR Executive Danielle, 34, in Sardinia one month prior to her death.
Danielle did not suffer from any known health problems and her cause of death is unknown.
The singer songwriter revealed the sad news last year in a long Instagram post.
He posted the tribute alongside a picture of Hampson cradling their then eight-month-old son, saying she died in the early hours of Saturday last year.
Tom wrote: ‘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.
‘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 alter; 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.
‘I will wear this ring that I was always supposed to wear as a sign of my unconditional love to you.’
He added about how he was planning to raise their son in her memory: ‘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.
‘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.
‘The most beautiful person inside and out. The most incredible soul. We have lost such a special person and I am sure we are about to see an abundant outpouring of love that reflects that.
‘I will try to find peace in your messages and comments, but right now I am grieving and I will be for a very, very long time.
‘My darling Dani, the brightest light in any room, my world is nothing but darkness without you. I will miss you forever.’
