Several touching tributes have been prepared for the funeral of late Babestation model Chloe Love, her boyfriend has revealed.
Amy Gregory, who went by the name Chloe Love, tragically took her own life and was found dead by her mother on January 2.
Her partner Lewys Montague, 28, said she will be sent off in style by wearing a sentimental gift that he recently brought her.
He told the Daily Star: "She had just had her ears done, I got her Vivian Westwood earrings from Selfridges and she loved them and that's what she's having on when we lay her to rest.
"There's a lot of details with these things. It's so surreal with what has happened."
Lewys went on to say that her small Pomeranian dogs Bennie and Blanca will be taking centre stage at her funeral on Monday, January 24.
"I brought a tuxedo for Bennie and a pink dress for Blanca so we are hoping to tie some balloons and have them walk in front of the cars going in front.
"The dogs were a big part of our lives they would come everywhere with us. everyone loved them."
Lewys says he has been organising Amy's wake for the past two weeks and said he has put his "blood, sweat and tears into organising the wake."
He said: "Amy loved pink so I've got some pink balloons and there will be a big buffet spread
"Our favourite thing to do was to take the dogs down to Barry Island. She loved the beach and loved being out as a family together.
"We used to get a hot dog every single time from the front of the beach – £2 with red sauce.
"If that was closed she would be fuming, then we would walk around to Flanagan fish bar to get her beloved sausage chips and gravy and then she would be happy."
He added: "So it's that and Chinese, you know the BBQ sauce? One night I went to about 7 places to get the right BBQ sauce for her.
"I want to do a little quirky send-off. I wanted her to have everything because she was glamorous in every single way."
Amy was found hanged in her bathroom by her mother following a battle with her depression.

Speaking about her mental health Lewys added: "I would try to sit down and speak to her and say babe what's wrong but Amy wouldn't speak up about her mental health.
"Amy would say let's talk about it later and then we would be back to our bubbly selves.
"That's the way she dealt with things and bless her soul she just couldn't get out of her head in the end."
