Felicite - who was known as Fizzy - was an aspiring fashion designer and influencer with over a million followers on Instagram. News of Louis' younger sister's death comes two years after their mother Johannah passed away from leukaemia. The X Factor judge was set to perform his new song, Two Of Us, written as a tribute to his mum on Comic Relief – he has since pulled out of Friday's live coverage. The lyrics included: "You’ll never know how much I miss you. The day that they took you, I wish it was me instead." Louis recently told BBC Radio 1 Newsbeat that playing the song to his younger sisters Felicite, Charlotte, Daisy and Phoebe was "tough". The 27-year-old star explained: "Me as their big brother - if I can sing those words it'll hopefully help them too."
