Heartbroken Shelby Tribble has revealed that her grandad has passed away.

The former The Only Way Is Essex star penned a touching tribute to her "one in a million" granddad with an emotional post alongside a slew of pictures of them together.

"It's broken our hearts in two. But heaven needed an Angel. And the one they picked was you," the 28 year old began with a red broken heart emoji.

Shelby emotionally continued: "I can't even put into words how heartbroken I feel. Our world will never be the same without you in it… I'll forever feel proud and lucky to call you my grandad and great grandad to our darling Abel."

The reality star continued: "You really are one in a million, a true gentleman, your smile was made of sunshine and heart was solid gold.

"I will cherish your love and memories forever and ever. I love you Grandy I'll always be your bustle," she concluded.

Shelby shared several snaps of her late grandfather, ranging from them in family settings and one throwback image of them smiling for the camera together.

The star's former TOWIE colleague paid their respects with Georgia Kousoulou and Courtney Green leaving a series of red heart emojis in the comments.

"Sending lots of love my darling to you and your family," Chloe Meadows wrote.

Former S Club 7 star Jo O'Meara wrote: "Sending you lots of love."

Shelby rose to fame on ITV's The Only Way Is Essex in March 2018 but left with her partner Sam Mucklow in 2019.

Since leaving the show, Shelby and Sam have gone on to have a baby boy called Abel and have said their relationship is much stronger now they're away from the world of reality TV.

Neither are fans of the heady lifestyle and insist they're much happier in their own little world as a three.

In August, several of Shelby's former co-stars were at the centre of a massive cull from TOWIE show bosses.

The shake-up will see a smaller number of core cast members become the main focus for the show and will ensure that fans can follow them on a more intimate level, including seeing more of their familial relationships and day-to-day at work.
