Speaking about her mum's bond with her boyfriend Billy Collins-Nuttall, Jodie said: "She adored Billy and Billy adored her, they had their own unique bond and I take great comfort from that.

"Mostly, though, I take comfort from the fact Mum finally got to see me truly happy and in love. It was all she ever wanted for me and I'm so grateful that she got to know and love Billy.

"I know that she knew Billy would be there for me and take care of me, and I know she knew that Billy is the one I've been waiting all my life for."

The starlet then went to recite a quote about finding inner strength.

Jodie continued: "I want to include this quote a friend gave me recently.
