The wife of singer Paul Young, Stacey, has died after a two-year battle with brain cancer.

Stacey, a former model, was 52 when she died in the presence of her husband and children.

Young’s publicist told the Press Association: “The singer Paul Young has today announced that his wife, Stacey Young, sadly passed away today after a two-year fight with brain cancer.

“Stacey died peacefully at home surrounded by family, friends and her four children: Levi, Layla, Grady and Jude.

“The family respectfully ask for privacy at this time.”
