Jodi Albert has issued one final tribute to her mother Eileen, who tragically lost her battle with cancer.

Her brave mum passed away last month after an eight-year battle with cancer.

The former Hollyoaks actress held the ceremony in London yesterday, where she was joined by her husband Kian Egan for support.

His former Westlife bandmates Nicky Byrne, Shane Filan and Mark Feehily were also present at the service.

"They all knew Eileen and they're all really fond of Jodi and wanted to show support," a source told the Irish Daily Star.

An emotional Jodi shared on Instagram: "We said goodbye to your body today,but you are a part of me and will live on in my heart forever. I will raise my children and make you proud. I love you my mummy. I will treasure our special relationship forever!

"Thank you for the life you gave me.#myangelnow."

Eileen was first diagnosed with cancer in 2009 and her cancer was in remission before she was diagnosed again.

Jodi's husband Kian Egan lost his father Kevin - who was too ill to attend their Barbados wedding in 2009 - in 2010.
