A heartbreaking image shared on Michie's Instagram a week previously also sees his late daughter preparing her fancy dress costume for the event, with the caption: "Sewing for Bestival".

According to The Sun, Mitchie - who has starred in the likes of Holby City, Coronation Street and Taggart - confirmed the news his daughter had passed away, saying: “We’ve lost our angel.”

He added: "It’s not murder – they were friends. It was just a tragic mistake, a tragic accident. This was not a murder. They were boyfriend and girlfriend. 

“She touched so many lives. She was so very positive, so bright, so out there. She had such energy. The tributes to her have been incredible.”

At the time of the news an official statement from Bestival read: "Following today’s news announcement, the team at Bestival are devastated to hear about this tragic news. We continue to support the police in their ongoing investigation and our thoughts and prayers are with all the woman’s family and friends"
