The fitness model from Dublin was jailed in February after being convicted of drug dealing in November 2014.

Shannen also spoke about the future she’d planned with Daniel in her tribute to him.

She wrote: “All We talked about was New Years in Thailand (how you were going to put a monkey in a Lidl bag and bring it home with you your words exactly) and how 2019 was our year a fresh start and how you knew you loved me and wanted us.

“I never ever stopped wanting you since the day we met the 19th of January 2015 we had this talk only a few weeks ago and We both agreed we loved each other too much.

“We were so protective about each other and so jealous we just done stupid things aired it for everyone to see and hurt each other but in the end we came back to each other and that’s all that matters."
