    Sam Burgess broke down in tears on Monday episode of SAS Australia, after he was given the morbid task of writing a ‘death letter’ to his family. 

    And Sam’s ex-wife Phoebe, 32 has revealed she suffered her own emotional rollercoaster this week, after one of the pair’s children became injured right before bedtime. 

    Posting to Instagram Stories on Tuesday, the single mother shared a black-and-white photo of her daughter Poppy, four, and son Billy, two, cuddling together on a bed.

    ‘It’s our nightly pre-bed book reading routine… pops and I wanted to surprise Billy with the new books we chose him today,’ Phoebe began her lengthy caption.  

    ‘So as they were tearing up and down the hallway like wildlings (ahem GOT reference, soz) tackling each other, even drawing blood after a rogue foot caused a tongue biting incident (#drama), I tucked into the hallway to grab the books… then silence (cue freak out).’ 

    Alarmed, Phoebe ran back into the room, bracing for the worst. 

    'I rushed back to find them in my bed, cuddling... like this': Phoebe shared a black-and-white photo of her daughter Poppy, four, and son Billy, two, cuddling together on a bed

    However, she was pleasantly surprised. 

    ‘I rushed back to find them in my bed, cuddling… like this. Poppy told me she was being mummy to Billy while I wasn’t there in case he got sore,’ she revealed.  

    ‘OK, I’m doing something right. Pure joy. Total, peace,’ she added.

    Phoebe’s post came hours after Sam broke down in uncontrollable tears after writing a ‘death letter’ to his family on the latest episode of SAS Australia.

    The 32-year-old former rugby league footballer knew it would be an emotional task, and forewarned his fellow recruits as he stepped up to speak.

    ‘Oh my God. I apologise in advance if I get emotional,’ he said, before clearing his throat and reading his letter aloud. 

    As explained by chief instructor Ant Middleton, the morbid task sees SAS soldiers writing one final letter before a mission, which will be delivered to their loved ones in the event they are killed in action.

    Addressing the letter to his ‘best friend’ and mother, Julie, Sam broke down as he spoke about his beloved brothers, Luke, Thomas and George.

    ‘To Luke, Thomas and George, my three brothers. I love you with all of my heart and soul,’ he said between floods of tears.

    ‘Not a day goes by that I have not felt you by my side, and my breath and food that I taste, the laughs that I’ve shared, but most importantly, the centre of my heart.’

    Unable to speak, an emotional Sam stood in front of his fellow recruits and openly wept, wiping tears from his eyes.

    He continued: ‘Keep pushing your boundaries and you’ll be surprised how far you go. You’re the three most amazing men. Be strong, be kind.’

    He then moved onto his children Poppy and Billy. 

    ‘From the taste in your favourite food to the salty taste in your tears, that’s me. I’ll live on through you both in every which way…’ he sobbed.

    ‘You can find me anywhere if you look hard enough. You’re my last thought and my last breath, but most importantly, I’ll be in your hearts forever.

    ‘Be kind, be strong, be there for each other. Be fair and be wise. Care for one another and follow your hearts. But most of all, believe in yourselves like your father does so I’ll live forever. Love you.’  

    Sam later said that’s he’s ‘learnt to feel things’ during his time on SAS Australia, and admitted he’s become more emotional.

    ‘I’m striving to be a better role model for my kids, for my brothers, for my family… All my wrongdoings, all my errors I’ve made over the past 12 to 18 months. I’m making amends now,’ he explained.

    SAS Australia continues Tuesday at 7.30pm on Channel Seven
