Fun with friends: Danielle and Tom had been joined by a group of friends on their trip
Tom auditioned for X Factor as a solo artist, but was placed in Stereo Kicks, which reached the ITV singing show final in 2014.
The group consisted of Jake Sims, Chris Leonard, Charlie Jones, Casey Johnson, Barclay Beales, Reece Bibby and Tom.
He then wrote songs for groups such as JLS, Lewis Capaldi, Becky Hill and Mimi Webb.
The band broke up in 2015, just 10 months after forming on The X Factor.
A statement to fans on the eight-piece band’s Facebook page revealed that they had decided to go their separate ways after struggling to secure a record deal.
Tom said of Danielle: “The most beautiful person inside and out. The most incredible soul. We’ve lost such a special person and I’m sure we’re about to see a great outpouring. of love that reflects that’
Condolences: The star’s famous friends reached out to share their support
The group wrote: “We all feel the time has come for us to continue our journeys individually.
“We learned firsthand how tough the industry is as an unsigned deed. Unfortunately, due to these circumstances, we are no longer able to continue as a band.
“Please understand that there is nothing more you could have done and this is a situation completely beyond your control and ours.” We’ve considered countless ways to make this work, but it’s logistically impossible for us to continue as Stereo Kicks.
“From the bottom of our hearts, we will be forever grateful for all of your hard work, support and love. We can never thank you enough.
The group went on to add that there was no falling out between the members before they decided to call it a day: “We still remain the BEST friends and will continue to support each other in everything we do. do.”

“Although it was really sad for us, we felt we wanted to end on a high note. You have been with us every step of the way and were the first to hear our news, and we wanted to keep it going!”
The group all performed as a solo artist during the auditions stage of The X Factor in 2014, before being merged into a group by the judges.
Former panelist Louis Walsh then sent the boys to the live shows, where they remained until they were kicked out after a chant with Lauren Platt in week eight.
Louis railed against Simon Cowell at the time, insisting he would regret his decision not to save them when they became a huge hit.

He told the Underground: ‘It was totally Simon’s bad decision. The potential of these boys is incredible and time will tell who will do well between these boys and the girl.
“I’ll never let him forget that. And when they sell all those records, I’ll be like, ‘Do you remember when you rejected them?’
The group had been tipped to be the next One Direction, but suffered a series of scandals early in their formation.
Barclay fell victim to revenge porn late last year after an explicit nude photo was leaked online.
Meanwhile, Jake has been caught up in two drug scandals in a month after photos of him lying in a daze after allegedly snorting the Class A drug ketamine emerged just weeks after he was accused of making several references about online smoking.
