The TV presenter took to social media to share the sad news

Sarah Beeny has confirmed the death of her father, Richard, in a heartbreaking social media post.

The 51-year-old thanked her father for his support during her life, in which he was by her side during her battle with breast cancer.

Announcing the news of Richard's death, Beeny shared a series of snaps of her father on Instagram.

Some included her and her children alongside their grandfather while others showed off her dad's playful side.

Beeny captioned the series of photos: "Goodbye my wonderful, fun, supportive, lover of life, father - thank you for just being you - may you rest in peace xxxx."

Beeny didn't reveal her father's cause of death.

Six years ago, Richard suffered a stroke which resulted in memory problems, leading Beeny to be open and honest about her breast cancer diagnosis with him as she feared he'd be confused.

The Property Ladder has openly discussed telling her father about the news due to the fact her mother died of the same illness.

It didn't take long for Beeny's fans to flood the post with their messages of support in her time of grief.

One fan penned: "Darling Sarah - sending you so much love - your Daddy was a wonderful human being - and he must have been so proud of all that you have accomplished."

A second added: "What a truly gorgeous man your father was…. So many fond memories…. So much love to you and Diccon xxx."

Elsewhere, a third echoed: "Im so sorry to hear this sad news. He was such a lovely lovely man. Sending you all lots of love xx."

And a fourth weighed in: "So sorry for your loss Sarah. I know how you feel as I’ve lost my father. Wasn’t it good that he knew you got better Sarah that must be a big deal for you. Sending my thoughts to you Sarah take care xxxx."

The condolences kept on coming as a fifth commented "I’m so sorry for your loss @sarah.beeny really hard when the last parent goes. Sending love and my deep condolences." (sic)

The TV presenter will be supported by her husband Graham and their children - although she admitted last month her marriage was "hanging by its fingernails".
