“Without you mum I would be half the woman I am today ! My love for you is like no other. You are special and we love you to the moon and back a million times @bevharv xxx”
Fans rushed to comment on the picture.
One wrote: “Happy birthday Bev xx”

A third put “Happy birthday!”
Lacey announced in February this year that her and husband Matt Kay were having a baby.
Confirming the news to OK! Magazine – where she said she was due in mid-July – Lacey said the couple have “dreamed of having a family for so long”.
Lacey told the publication: “I can’t wait to nurture our baby – we’ve dreamed of having a family for so long. When you’ve lost babies all you care about is the heartbeat – we’ve had about 12 scans.”
The former Our Girl star tragically suffered two miscarriages before her current pregnancy, and told OK! she felt as though her “whole world had fallen to pieces” when she lost her babies.
She said: “I blamed myself thinking that I’d done something wrong.
“I’d think, ‘Why me? What did I do?’ But, of course, I hadn’t done anything wrong – it’s all down to chromosomes and luck, really.
“Speaking to other people about it helped me. Women shouldn’t feel ashamed to talk about it as it happens to so many women.”
