Joelle Hughes found tiny Lulabelle Snow Hurst had stopped breathing and the girl could not be woken.
Ms Hughes, from Headcorn, Kent, was dubbed the “prettiest ever Jeremy Kyle guest” when she appeared on the show in 2015.
She tucked little Lulabelle into bed but the little girl tragically never woke up from her sleep.
Ms Hughes, from Headcorn, Kent, described her daughter as the “brightest star in the sky” as she shared the news with her family and friends.
She wrote on Facebook: “My life, my angel, my beautiful soul of a daughter was taken from us so suddenly. She went to bed Friday her happy cheeky self, she was a little monkey whilst I tried to brush her teeth.
“We gave her cuddles and kisses like usual and tucked her into bed”
“We gave her cuddles and kisses like usual and tucked her into bed. I found her later that evening not breathing.
“I tried so hard to get my angel back but for whatever reason my little girl is needed up there.
“She was a perfect one-year-old baby girl who loved more than anything to dance, have cuddles and play with her big brother. She will be loved dearly by everyone forever.
“I would like to thank everyone from the bottom of my heart for your kind words and amazing support.”
Family friend Alexandra Corcoran set up a GoFundMe page to raise money for the one-year-old’s funeral.
Generous donations have flooded in bringing the total to more than £4,500 of the £5,500 target.
She said: “She was a beautiful little girl who brought so much joy to those around her. She will be deeply missed by everyone, especially her brother Teddy and mummy and daddy.
“Her passing has touched so many people, let’s hope we can raise enough money to give her the beautiful princess send-off she deserves.”
An inquest will take place to establish the cause of the little girl’s death, South East Kent Coroner’s Office said.
