In a post two days ago, Laura revealed that her grandfather, who she called Pops, had died at the age of 89, hours after she landed on the Greek island.
She told her 89,400 followers that she was “incredibly emotional and sad” but felt lucky to have spent 38 years with him.
The mum-of-two, who shares son Rocco, six, and daughter Tahlia, five, with her husband Alex Goward, also said she was thankful that he got to spend time with her children.
Today, she returned to the picture-sharing site to thank fans for their kind words and messages.
