SEVENTIES music star Lynsey de Paul has died after complaining of severe headaches.

The singer died in a London hospital on Wednesday October 1.

The 64-year-old had been suffering from headaches, leading to the suspicion that she may have died of a brain haemorrhage.

De Paul rose to fame in the 1970s after her song Sugar Me went to number five in the UK charts in 1972.

In 1977 she represented Great Britain in the Eurovision Song Contest along with Mike Moran, and just lost out to the eventual winners from France.

A successful songwriter as well as a singer, De Paul won the Ivor Novello award for writing the top 20 song Won’t Somebody Dance with Me.

Close friend and collaborator, Esther Rantzen, paid tribute to Lynsey de Paul.

She said: “She was a renaissance woman. She could do everything: she could sing, she could compose, she was an immensely talented artist.

“She became a huge star but she was also a loyal and generous friend. It’s an absolutely tragic loss.”

The star also appeared in the celebrity versions of Come Dine with Me and Cash in the Attic.

Michael Joyce, her agent, issued a statement saying: “Although she was small in stature, she was very big in positive personality. She was always so positive about everything.”
