A British pole dancing champion, Jess Leanne Norris has died at the age of 27.
Her death is preceded by a post she made saying that she was finding the Coronavirus lockdown 'so hard'.
Norris, from Bolton in Lancashire, was a two-time winner of Miss Pole Dance UK.
The details of how Ms. Norris died have not been revealed but last year, she launched a fundraising drive in aid of mental health charities.
The news of her death comes two months after she shared an emotional post on Facebook saying she was finding lockdown 'so so hard' and that a lot of us are feeling 'stressed, lost and lonely'
The post on April 4 read:
'I myself am finding this so so hard...it always takes me time to adapt to 'change' mentally as I'm one to need structure to cope with mind!
A lot of us are all feeling stressed, lost & lonely... but please don't feel alone... We're all in this together.'
