Eamonn Holmes accidentally sent condolences to Daisy Lowe after he misunderstood her Father's Day tribute to dad Gavin Rossdale and thought he was dead.

Model Lowe, 32, joined the many celebrities celebrating their dads on social media on Sunday, posting a photo of herself with Rossdale.

"Wishing you the most gorgeous day with my angel brothers- thanks for being the greatest leader of the pack. Giving the best advice, forever the calm and compassionate fountain of wisdom. And the creator of the worlds best breakfast burritos. 

"I am so grateful, in the worlds most complicated way, you turned out to be my dad. You inspire me every day… I love you more than words could ever express- I can’t wait til we get to have more adventures together again."

Confused Holmes, 61, then sent a sweet message to Lowe to offer his sympathies on Rossdale's death after misunderstanding what she'd said about missing him.

The TV presenter wrote: "I had no idea u had lost your Dad Daisy. He must have been so young x"

Some of Lowe's fans pointed out his mistake, but she thanked Holmes writing: "He’s just in LA where I can’t visit!!! Thank you love xxx"

Lowe only discovered that Bush musician Rossdale was her father in 2004 after he took a paternity test – she had previously been thought to be the child of mum Pearl Lowe's ex Bronner Handwerger, and Rossdale was her godfather.
