Steve Bing, Damian's father, passed away on 22 June. Taking to her Instagram page last Tuesday, just hours after the sad news was announced, the actress posted a series of throwback pictures with the late film producer as she expressed her sadness.

"I am saddened beyond belief that my ex Steve is no longer with us," she wrote. "It is a terrible end. Our time together was very happy and I'm posting these pictures because although we went through some tough times, it's the good, wonderful memories of a sweet, kind man that matter."

Elizabeth concluded her message: "In the past year we had become close again. We last spoke on our son's 18th birthday. This is devastating news and I thank everyone for their lovely messages."

The former couple's son Damian also penned a heartfelt message, writing: "Thank you from the bottom of my heart to everyone that has reached out following the devastating news. I'm trying to reply to as many of you as I can, but please know I will always remember your kindness." He added: "This is a very strange and confusing time and I'm immensely grateful to be surrounded by my phenomenal family and friends."

Elizabeth and Damian are currently self-isolating at their Herefordshire country home with seven other people, something she exclusively revealed to HELLO! back in April.
