She was also an animal lover.
After her death her family released a statement through Norfolk police which said: “Hannah was a beautiful young woman inside and out. She loved life and was always full of fun.
“Above everything Hannah adored her animals. We are left devastated by the news of her death.”
A close friend and dancer Cerise Mae also paid tribute at the time by saying: “Hannah was talented, sweet and her smile was infectious. She performed because she enjoyed making people happy. Hannah is my best friend. She was there every single time I needed her.”
