A women's rugby player hanged herself on New Year's Eve 'on the spur of the moment' after finding out that her ex-girlfriend was engaged to another woman, an inquest has heard.
Danielle Birchmore, 27, posted a message on Facebook at 5am after a night out saying she had been to 'hell and back' in the past year, adding: 'If it wasn't for mum and dad I would be in a coffin.'In another status, she added: 'Sorry to everybody that has tried to help me but 2016 got the better of me.'Hours later, Miss Birchmore was found dead at her flat in Wigan, Greater Manchester, with two handwritten notes found nearby.
A lot of websites speculate they started to date back in 2008, but no one really knows for sure.
It surprises me journalists haven’t just asked him about their relationship.
Not only is it legit, but it’s been growing throughout half his career.
