Lily, now the 30-year-old mum of two girls (Ethel Mary, 3, and Marnie Rose, 2), took to her Twitter account this morning and said:

“5 years ago today I was admitted to hospital. 4 days later I delivered a beautiful baby boy, but sadly he didn’t make it.

“It’s unlike me to discuss this sort of thing so publicly but I wrote this song in his memory when writing something for @panmovie.

“Please listen and if you fancy it, you could donate in his memory [to Sands charity] much love, lil.”

The song, Something’s Not Right, which Lily co-wrote with Keane keyboardist Tim Rice-Oxley, contains the heartbreaking lines:

We had forever

We never got it together

I waited for you

For you I made it better

They kept telling me that it was unlikely

All I had to do was keep you beside me

Something’s not right

There aren’t many stars in the sky tonight

Something’s not right

Cause I know that it’s day but it’s dark outside

And I feel a weight in my heart tonight

Lily hasn’t commented that much about the stillbirth, but did say last year: “It was horrendous and something I would not wish on my worst enemy.

“But it’s not something you get over. I held my child and it was really horrific and painful – one of the hardest things that can happen to a person.”
