It emerged on Tuesday that Cathriona, the ex-girlfriend of Jim Carrey, had taken her own life just days after their relationship ended for the second time. The Irish make-up artist, who celebrated her birthday earlier this month, had written a worrying message on Twitter three days before her death.

"Signing off Twitter, I hope I have been a light to my nearest and dearest. Love to yo all," she posted.
