My prayers and heart are with family and friends that were blessed to know his beautiful soul.” Earlier this year Sam posted a picture of himself with June, a panellist on ITV’s Loose Women who recently appeared as part of the campaign to keep Britain in the EU, which he captioned: “with my #Supastar sis June”.
