Zoe was devastated when boyfriend Billy took his own life back in May, without any warning.

At the time the devastated TV presenter posted a picture of a flower on Instagram with the caption “My sweet love. X”

A close friend said at the time: “Zoe is overcome with grief. She is completely and utterly devastated.

“Billy had made her happy again after the most horrendous year when her marriage broke down.

“This was completely out of the blue.  She had no feeling that this was coming and is in total shock.

“As far as we know this occurred at his house in London and it was friends who raised the alarm. She’s going to need a lot of time to grieve.

“This just feels so unfair because Zoe had finally found happiness with Billy and had so many exciting plans for their future.

“It’s devastating. There’s nothing else other than devastation today.”

After Billy’s funeral, Zoe posted this touching Instagram post:
