Aideen told her 16,600 Twitter followers on Tuesday that she had been unwell in hospital.

Sharing photos of her receiving a blood transfusion, she wrote: “Day 19 in hospital – say a wee prayer for me. Bleeding in stomach.”

Then three days later, she revealed she was “going home to die” as the treatment had not gone as hoped.

Exactly what Aideen was suffering from has not been disclosed.

“Goodbye beautiful girl.”

She later added: “Our time here on Earth is done. I grieve for that.
