Zoe Ball's boyfriend has been laid to rest.

The "Strictly Come Dancing: It Takes Two" presenter took to her Instagram account on Monday (23.05.17) evening after she attended the private funeral of her partner Billy Yates to state she'll "always love" him as she wished him his final "goodnight."

Alongside a photograph of Billy on holiday, she wrote: "Goodnight my beautiful Boy. I'll be loving you always, (sic)" followed by a heart, flower and star emoji.

The "Antiques Roadshow" cameraman was found hanged at his home in Putney, South London, on May 4 by some of his concerned friends, Met Police confirmed.

The statement said: "Police were called to a residential address in Putney, South London at 18.40 on Thursday 4th May, to reports of a man found deceased. Officers attended alongside staff from the London Ambulance Service, and a man believed to be aged 40 was pronounced dead at the scene. The circumstances are not being treated as suspicious, and the coroner has been informed."

A source said recently: "Zoe is overcome with grief. She is completely and utterly devastated. Billy had made her happy again after the most horrendous year when her marriage broke down. This was completely out of the blue.

"She had no feeling that this was coming and is in total shock. As far as we know this occurred at his house in south London and it was friends who raised the alarm. She's going to need a lot of time to grieve. This just feels so unfair because Zoe had finally found happiness with Billy and had so many exciting plans for their future. It's devastating. There's nothing else other than devastation today."

Zoe's relationship with Billy came shortly after she split from her husband Norman Cook - also known as Fatboy Slim - after she was spotted smooching 23-year-old boyband singer Tay Tay Starhz in a London nightclub.
