Today, online biker moving messages describe him as “a brother from another” while “TOMMY RIP” was sprayed onto the ground at the crash site inside a blue graffiti heart.

The 28-year-old is survived by a young daughter who turned her first birthday last week.

The force of the impact propelled Tommy 20 feet into the air, after which he landed directly on the pavement.

Emergency services arrived at the scene, but, unfortunately, they could not save his life.

One friend, Phil M. G. Smith, posted a tribute on Facebook along with photos of flowers at the crash site and a video of the balloon hovering in the air.

In the caption, he wrote: “This is for you my brother from another, we all miss you Tom, this doesn’t even seem real, one loves my brother and take it easy.”

At the end, Phil wrote: “Love you my brother, forever and always.”

The mother of Tommy’s child shared another heartbreaking post in which she remembered her daughter’s father.

Amba Davis posted photos of the small family on Facebook. daily mail.

She wrote the caption: “The last 4 years have not been the easiest, but you gave me the best gift that anyone could give me.

“She loves you so much, Tommy, and I’ll tell her about you every single day, and I’ll make sure you’re proud of her!”

She then added, “You have my heart, Thomas Roy Griggs. Rest in eternal peace.”

At the scene, one of the notes on the bouquet of flowers reads: “Tommy G bro, I can’t believe this happened because I’m gutted. I love you forever Brosky.”

Another says, “R.I.P. Brother, sleep well,” and the lantern reads “Brothers for Life, Tommy.”

TV presenter Kem was “traumatized” by the impact as video footage showed his reaction in the moments after the crash.

The celebrity is helping police with their investigations and his £123,000 G-Wagon could be seen at the crash site with its bumper torn off.

Witnesses say Kem was unhurt but was “deeply shaken” after the crash, which happened just meters from his restaurant in Harold Wood, Romford.

The motorcyclist reportedly collided with Kem’s car after trying to overtake cars going uphill as the star was descending.

One witness told Kristen Bell Tattoos: “I sympathize with him. He saw someone die before his eyes.

“We all recognized him. He was talking to someone on the phone, saying that there had been an accident and that he was worried.

“He was in total shock.”

He added: “He didn’t do anything wrong. There were about six witnesses, and we all saw what happened.

“The biker passed us all and ended up on the wrong side of the road when he crashed head-on into Kemi’s car at about 60 mph on a 30 mph road.

“The motorcycle rider took off about 20 feet into the air before landing on the road.”

Kemi’s damaged motor was seen at the scene last night, including its bumper.

Local resident Marcelo Torres, 48, said: “Motorcycle parts are still lying all over the road.

“They even called for an air ambulance, but it was too late.”

The horrific accident happened just 800 yards from the host’s Romford Bar Array, which he calls his “greatest achievement.”

Kem, who is worth £4.3 million and became Primark’s first menswear ambassador, lives close to the stage in a £1.5 million mansion in Essex.

The star is shocked by the ordeal and was left “devastated” according to friends.

A statement released by Kem’s spokesperson said: “This morning (Thursday), Kem was involved in a traffic accident near her home in the Brentwood area at approximately 11:30 am.

“Unfortunately, the motorcyclist died in the collision. Kem helped the police, and she is treated solely as a witness to the incident.

“Who will have no further comment on this matter other than to express their deepest condolences, prayers and sympathy to the motorcyclist’s family and friends.”
