Iman led tributes to her late husband David Bowie on what would have been the star’s 73rd birthday.

The model, 64, shared a black and white photograph on Twitter of the star, captioned simply: “January 8th #BowieForever #EternalLove.”

Iman, who tied the knot with the late singer in 1992, also posted a quote which said: “Like scattered seeds, memories of you bloom everywhere.”

Bowie died in 2016 aged 69, following a battle with cancer.

A host of other stars also remembered the singer on his birthday.

Actor Geoffrey Arend wrote on Twitter: “Happy birthday to my all-time favorite musician and wax collaborator @davidbowie.

“I’ll never stop missing you. Thanks for leaving such an enormous artistic legacy.

“Wait for me in the hallway, would you?”

Drag Race star RuPaul shared a picture of Bowie and wrote: “At 14, I carried a Magic Marker around with me to write the name BOWIE on everything that wasn’t moving.”

Director Edgar Wright shared a Bowie playlist and tweeted: “Happy Birthday Bowie.”

Red Dwarf star Danny John-Jules posted a throwback snap of himself with the singer, while David Walliams captioned an image of the star on Twitter: “I am sorry, but he was perfect…”

Bowie was born in Brixton, London, in 1947, on January 8. He died on January 10, 2016 in New York.
