The former Ex On The Beach star, 32, from London, shared the sad news Instagram with a collection of photos showing her with her father, who died at the age of 70 after a year of foster care.
She said: “Sadly my father Colin passed away last night after a year with end stage lung cancer and other complications. My dad was a fighter and endured for so long, I will carry that fighting spirit with me into my future!
“I was able to hold his hand to the end and that meant the world to me. Rest in peace dad, I love you very much.”
Colin’s death comes while he was battling lung cancer, vascular dementia, Alzheimer’s and a heart aneurysm.

On their first date, Charlie took Jess on a Jack The Ripper tour before posting photos of the two.

“The people who bother to say terrible things are the ones who have a problem.”
Jess Impiazzi fans will recognize Rogan O’Connor as her ex from MTV’s Ex on the Beach and for one particularly hot scene.
Rogan is a reality TV star and model currently touring the UK with the Magic Mike style strip show Dreamboys.
Jess previously admitted in an interview that she regrets having sex with Rogan on TV The sun.
After five months of secretly dating, the Ex on the Beach star and the ex-footballer confirmed their relationship in March 2022 when they appeared on Access All Areas on FUBAR Radio.
The official news came after they were spotted on holiday in Tenerife and told an insider Irish mirror that “things were going really well”.
The insider added, “They’ve both had genuinely public relationships in the past but are keen on keeping those out of the public eye.”
Since the interview, the couple has been seen regularly on each other’s social media accounts and at public events.
Jess’ public relationship in question was her 15-month marriage to rugby player Denny Solomona.
Denny and Jess wed in 2016 at a whirlwind Vegas wedding ceremony at the same chapel where Britney Spears was married, but split in 2018 after Denny cheated on the TV star.
Jess once described Denny as the “love of her life” and revealed all in an interview with the Daily Mail that she almost committed suicide while visiting his family in Australia after hearing news of Denny’s infidelity.
Jess Impiazzi was also once linked to another footballer prior to her current relationship.
In 2020, Jess was pictured with Hemel Hempstead Town player Samir Carruthers at the London Mulan premiere.
However, the couple only lasted a year before splitting to focus on their respective careers.
