From BBC News.

Singer Alvin Stardust has died aged 72 after a short illness.

Born Bernard Jewry in the East End of London in 1942, his hits included My Coo Ca Choo, Jealous Mind and I Feel Like Buddy Holly.

He had recently been diagnosed with metastatic prostate cancer and died at home with his wife and family around him.

The former glam rock star had been due to release his first studio album in 30 years this autumn.

Once described as "the Godfather of British Rock 'n' Roll" by Rolling Stone Keith Richards, he made sporadic acting appearances in Hollyoaks, The Grimly's and Doctors.

He also appeared on stage in such musicals as Godspell, The Phantom of the Opera and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, in which he played the fearsome Child Catcher.
