Bo Bruce of The Voice is mourning the loss of her mother after the latter lost in her battle with pancreatic cancer.
Her mother Rosamond Winkley died at her home in Marlborough, Wilts after a six-month bout with the disease. She died peacefully in the night at their home while surrounded by her loved ones.
Bo, 26, emotionally wrote, “Light a candle, thousands of us, light a candle” on her Facebook page.
She also posted a message on her website thanking her fans for their love and support.
The tragedy also prompted her to cancel an appearance at T In The Park last week to spend time with her mum.
The young singer, however, wrote a promise to her fans in the letter on her website, saying, “Bo promises she will be back before too long. She is spending quiet time with her close friends and family.”
Bo Bruce, who is really named Lady Catherine Anna Brudenell-Bruce, was one of the runner-ups in the first series of The Voice, losing the winning crown to Leanne Mitchell. Previously, she has also been linked romantically with her mentor on the show, Danny O’Donoghue.
She is estranged from her father, David Brudenell-Bruce, the Earl of Cardigan, when the latter divorced her mother seven years ago. The singer, however, has not been open to reconciliation despite reports that the Earl had been trying to get in touch with her when she appeared on The Voice.
