Heartbroken radio star Amy Irons has paid tribute to her boyfriend live on air following the 34-year-old’s sudden death two weeks ago.
The 27-year-old returned to work at Capital Scotland to present the breakfast show this morning.
In an on-air message to fans she thanked them for all their support since her "soul mate" Wayne Ewer’s death.
She later took to social media and said: "Really nice to be back on air this morning, thanks for all the lovely messages getting me through, you’re all absolute heroes."
Listeners and colleagues are praising Amy for getting back in the studio while she comes to terms with losing Wayne.
Colleague Garry Spence wrote: “Never respected a colleague more than @AmyJIrons today. Back on Capital, at our suggestion, for some much needed normality. She’s been a total pro since 6am xx”
Amy shared Garry’s tweet, adding: “When you go through something like this it can be hard to keep going. Colleagues like this are one of the reasons I can @garry__spence and @stevenmill you have been incredible this morning”.
One fan tweeted: “Great to hear @AmyJIrons back on Capital this morning, hasn’t been the same without you”.
Wayne died four days after being found injured in the couple’s flat in Yorkhill.
Police Scotland said a 34-year-old man was rushed to the city’s Queen Elizabeth University Hospital from the flat at 10.50pm on June 17 but later died.
A spokeswoman said: “There appear to be no suspicious circumstances surrounding his death.”
Following his death, Amy, the daughter of football legend Davie Irons, took to Facebook to pay tribute to the South African, saying he was the “most amazing man I’ve ever met," as Mirror Online previously reported .
In the emotional Facebook post, that reduced many to tears, Amy wrote: "My bubba, My Waynie
"What I’d give to have you here with me right now, to see that smile, to stare into those beautiful eyes, to hear that fog horn laugh!!"
She added: "You changed my life forever from the second we met and I’m so thankful I got to spend so much time with my soulmate.
"You’ve given me something I’ll never forget, something I’ll never replace and I know you’re always going to be with me."
Among the tributes flooding in for Wayne, pal Sarah-Jane Rossiter wrote: "Thank you Wayne for the laughs, the inspiration, the drive and for getting me to wear this cap backwards.
"I’ll be having a whiskey later and thinking about you x".
