"I miss you and I love you forever Mummy.”

Bachelor In Paradise star Jake Ellis has taken to Instagram to share a tribute to his mother who passed away in January. 

The reality star shared the post to mark the first Mother’s Day without his beloved mum, Robyn. 

He wrote:

“This is the first Mother’s Day without you, the first time Luke and I haven’t been able to hold you close and tell you how how much we love you on this special day. 

“But I know you’re looking over every step we take just as you’re in our hearts every single moment of each day. I miss you and I love you forever Mummy.”

Robyn was first diagnosed with cancer when Jake was just six-years-old. She spent the next ten years cancer-free, but it sadly returned.

Speaking with Daily Mail after his mother’s passing, Jake described Robyn as “mine and my brother’s here, the strongest woman I’ve ever met.”

“Last year (2017) was definitely the hardest year for her and my family… She held on in true Robyn Ellis style, she fought all the way until the very end', he said, adding that his mum was 'the biggest fighter I’ve ever met.”

Jake continues to support fundraising initiatives and raising awareness for the Cancer Council and other cancer charities. 

“Every event I ever did I took my mum along to. It is and will always be my passion.”
