Now, it's been revealed Dr Uchenna's cause of death was a subarachnoid haemorrhage. 

A family spokesperson told MailOnline: "Dr Uchenna's sudden death was due to natural causes. We are devastated, and our hearts are broken that her beautiful, full life has been cut so short. 

"As a family, our priority right now is to take care of her young daughter and continue her legacy and keep her memory alive. A private celebration of her life will be held in the coming weeks."

It comes after her personal assistant and "bestie buddy" for 20 years Mars Webb described how Dr Okoye had a normal "busy week" before suddenly passing away.

The dental specialist had watched the musical Moulin Rouge in the West End and attended an industry event.

She had also promoted her new Mysmile dental product with clients at a lunch meeting.

Ms Webb revealed her family and friends are waiting for a coroner's report "to find out exactly what happened".

She said: "There are no suspicious circumstances surrounding her death.

"She was a happy, healthy and busy person, with no apparent health problems.

"Her passing has come as a total shock to everybody - it came totally out of the blue.

"But sadly, this does sometimes happen to healthy people who can suddenly pass without explanation."

Tributes have been flooding in
