Jane’s touching tribute to Shane

Jane uploaded a snapshot of herself with superfan Shane Hill. The pair appeared happy to be in each other’s company, flashing a smile directly to the camera.

Even though they were both glowing, Jane told her followers that Shane had passed away and paid tribute to him.

“So saddened to hear the awful news about Shane Hill’s tragic passing,” she wrote. “@shanebarnsley you will be sorely missed. RIP Shane.”

‘He had a massive heart’

Fellow Jane fans were quick to share their condolences. And, while not everyone knew him personally, many were still saddened by the news.

“He had a massive heart, he would be absolutely over the moon to see this tribute. Jane’s biggest number 1 fan, I’ve printed him a few T-shirts for concerts (he’s a relative of mine),” one user commented. They then added: “He was just fun to be around always with a huge smile on his face.”

“What other celebrity would recognise his death? Jane always has her feet on the ground,” another person shared.

“Oh no I was just watching the Channel 5 documentary from the hospital he worked in and was talking about how much he loved Jane. Aww what a shame, he seemed lovely and just what the NHS is about and needs caring for patients,” a third fan remarked.

“What a lovely and respectful post Jane! What sad news,” a fourth commented.
