James Morrison flooded with support after wife is found dead

James Morrison flooded with support after wife is found dead

People have offered their heartfelt sympathies to the singer

The singer James Morrison has received support and sympathy after the death of his wife Gill Catchpole.

She was found dead in her home in Whitminster, Gloucester on Friday (5 January).

A statement from Gloucestershire Constabulary confirmed her death.

They said: "Police were called to Whitminster in Gloucester at around 9.10am on Friday 5 January following concerns for the welfare of a resident.

"Officers attended and the body of a woman in her 40s was found within an address.

"The death is being treated as non-suspicious at this time. The coroners and woman's next of kin have been informed."

Morrison and Catchpole had been together for around two decades, and had first met when she moved into his mother's house as a lodger.

He had said their relationship was a 'fairytale' and claimed he attempted to impress her by singing Stevie Wonder songs.

The 39-year-old has not posted on social media about the death of his wife, but fans have nonetheless offered him their support and deepest sympathies.

The comments on his most recent post on Instagram have been flooded with messages telling Morrison how deeply they felt his sorrow.

Many people commented to offer their condolences and thoughts during what must be an incredibly difficult time for Morrison, including magician Steven Frayne who said he was 'incredibly sorry for your loss'.

Someone else told the singer the impact his music had on their life, telling Morrison his songs 'kept me holding on many times in my life' and hoping earnestly to repay that feeling.

The couple had two daughters together.

Another offered 'love to your whole family', with the couple having two daughters aged 15 and five together.

Others said they would keep the singer in their thoughts, and another told him 'you're stronger than you know'.

More said they hoped that the singer would take as much time to grieve as he needed as they 'can't begin to imagine what you and the kids are going through'.

One who said they'd had experience with bereavement in the past recommended that he 'be with your people and you will manage to get through another day and another'.

When tragedy strikes people do step up to offer support, as evidenced by the plethora of messages sent to the singer and his family from his fans sending love at a time when it is needed most of all.
