Little Flynn died of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, or cot death, at 2.25am on May 18, last year.

The TV  actress found her two-and-a-half-week-old son in her sleeping fiance Steve Davies' arms, "grey in the face", she told the inquest into the death of her son last month.

The pair attempted to resuscitate him and he was rushed to hospital but there was nothing medics could do to save him.

The inquest ruled that he died from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, or cot death.

Last night, the mum said online: “This time last year you were cuddled in my arms my love. I miss you every second. My Flynn x”

Miss Arnold has another son, Hunter, aged two, with her partner Steve.

She told an inquest in the UK last month: "Flynn was a perfect baby. He was healthy and extremely loved every second of the day."

During the inquest, the traumatised actress had to relive the devastating night her baby died.

The former Clinic star told the inquest that she screamed when she realised her baby was in danger.

Fighting back tears, Ms Arnold said: ‘Flynn was a perfect baby. He was healthy and extremely loved every second of the day."
