Alex Mytton has shared a heartbreaking tribute to his mum after she passed away following a battle with brain cancer.
The Made in Chelsea star, 27, posted a photo of her on Instagram and told his followers she was the “kindest, most caring” woman in his life.
He captioned the post: “Last week I had to say goodbye to my mum for the last time. After fighting, what now seems like a brief battle with brain cancer my mum finally succumbed to the disease.
“So I just wanna say if there was ever proof needed that these diseases act at random or without prejudice you would be it mum.
“You really were the kindest, most caring, beautiful all-round woman and undoubtedly the biggest force for good in my life.”
Writing further, a heartbroken Alex said he owes his mum “infinitely” and admitted he felt life will be a “struggle” without her.
He concluded the long, emotional post by thanking the professionals who cared for her near the end and supported him and his family.
Alex’s Made in Chelsea co-stars rushed to offer messages of condolences in the comments.
Binky Felstead told him his mum was “an incredible woman” and said she’s sending “so much love”.
Echoing her comment, Georgia Toffolo said she was sending “so so so much love” to Alex and his family.
Oliver Proudlock wrote: “So sorry for you loss my man. Thinking of you and your family. Let’s cherish the memories, and continue to make em proud.”
Jessica Woodley said: “Love you, Myt she so proud of you.”
And others who had also lost family and friends to the disease joined the comments to let Alex know they understood his pain.
One said: “I lost mum in 2015 and it’s still hurting now. Never be afraid to say how you feel and don’t apologise for saying it. People are always there to listen no matter who it is.”
Another wrote: “I lost my dad in January to a glioblastoma – brain cancer. It’s a cruel random thing. I’m still in denial. I think it takes a long time to really accept someone isn’t coming back. I’m sending love. From one stranger to another.”
A third commented: “Alex, I also lost my mum to cancer this year… I feel your pain. But keep your chin up and keep talking it honestly helps you through those low times.”
