Louis Tomlinson has spoken out for the first time following the death of his younger sister Félicité.

The 18-year-old died of a suspected heart attack after she collapsed outside her home in Earl’s Court, West London last month.

Her death came nearly two years after their mother, Johannah Deakin, died of leukaemia in 2016. She was 43.

One Direction star Tomlinson broke his silence on Wednesday to thank fans for their “lovely words” and confirmed he is turning his focus to music.

"Just wanted to thank everyone for their lovely words over the past couple of weeks," he tweeted.

“Back in the studio today to vocal something I wrote a few months ago. Sending you all loads of love x.”

The sweet tweet comes after Tomlinson’s 20-year-old sister Lottie paid tribute to their sibling in a heart-breaking post to her “best friend”.

She shared a slew of snaps of Félicité on Instagram, including three of her beaming at the camera and one black and white snap from their younger years.

“My Fizzy, my baby sister, my best friend,” she wrote. “I’m incomplete without you, I’m empty. I can’t picture my life without you.

“I wish we could have lived life together for a little longer. Mama needed you and you needed her, you’re finally together again. I love you always, Dotty x.”

A week later Lottie shared a tribute on what would have been their mother’s 46th birthday.

She wrote: “Happy birthday to my gorgeous Mama. Third birthday without you. Only this time you’ve got your gorgeous Fizzy with you to celebrate, I hope you’re both having the best time.

“I love you more now than ever and I take every lesson you taught with me through life. Thank you for everything Mama X.”
