“Unfortunately whilst my mum Janice Bowles was on holiday in Egypt, there was an accident and she sadly passed away.

“I am broken inside and don’t know how to get my head around it. It is such a devastating shock to the whole family.

“She was the funniest, kindest, most loving mother I know and if I can aspire to be half the woman she is I know I’ll do my girls proud.”

Ms Bowles, from Bristol, was on a Thomas Cook holiday in the beach resort town of Hurgahada before her death.

The incident occurred just a week after the death of Susan and John Cooper during a stay at the Steigenberger Aqua Magic Hotel in Hurghada.
