Writing below the photo of her late relative, she said: “I love you” followed by two red heart emojis.
Later, Chloe returned to Instagram to share her appreciation for her fans messages following the sad news after spending the evening snuggling with her dogs.
Chloe, who recently revealed she gained two stone during her Dubai work trip, wrote: “Thanks for all the messages last night really appreciated it” followed by a red heart emoji.
She then added: “Getting back to them all now” followed by a smiling face emoji surrounded by love hearts.
It comes after Chloe revealed she was in a bad place before jetting off to Dubai for work purposes.
Chloe was slammed as she flew to the UAE in December and flaunted her work trip with photos of her posing in swimwear at the sun-soaked destination.
And upon her return to the UK Chloe has said she feels like a new woman.
Writing in white text on a black background in a post on her Instagram story, Chloe told her 3.5million followers: “The last month while been away I’ve had a lot of time to think and look at my life and what I want in life!!
“I’ve come to the conclusion you can’t relay on anyone for happiness, you need to have happiness within yourself if you are struggling to find that happiness within yourself, don’t worry it will come. [sic]
“At the start of my holiday I was in a bad place you would have never known.
“I just wasn’t happy for some reason very down.”
She continued: “But leaving here today I feel so happy within myself, it’s about having the right people around you and know what you want in your life and your future.”
