Pop Idol star Darius Campbell Danesh dies aged 41

OHMYGOSSIP — Darius Campbell Danesh has died at the age of 41.
The singer and actor – who rose to fame on ‘Popstars’ and ‘Pop Idol’ two decades ago – was found unresponsive in his apartment in Rochester, Minnesota, on August 11.
His family said in a statement: “It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Darius Campbell Danesh. Darius was found unresponsive in bed in his apartment room in Rochester, Minnesota, on August 11 and was pronounced dead in the afternoon by the local medical examiners’ office.
“The local police department have confirmed that there were no signs of intent or suspicious circumstances. The cause of his sudden death is unknown at this stage while medical examinations continue.
“We ask that you kindly respect our wishes for privacy at this time whilst we come to terms with the tragic loss of our son and brother.”
The singer finished third on ‘Pop Idol’ in 2002, behind Will Young and Gareth Gates, and he subsequently topped the UK charts with his single ‘Colourblind’.
He later became a star in London’s West End, appearing in musicals such as ‘Chicago’ and ‘Guys and Dolls’.
Tributes have already been paid to the late star, including from former ‘X Factor’ contestant Rylan Clark.
He wrote on Twitter: “Proper sad about Darius [heart emoji] (sic)”
Elsewhere, actor Sanjeev Bhaskar recalled Darius’ appearance on the TV comedy series ‘The Kumars at No. 42’.
He wrote: “Sad news of Darius’ shockingly untimely passing. He was a guest on The Kumars and couldn’t have been a nicer, warmer guest with a great sense of self deprecation. (sic)”
TV presenter Lorraine Kelly also paid a glowing tribute to the late pop star.
She said: “This is really sad. Thoughts with his family and friends and everyone who loved him. A really good bloke – funny and kind and very talented.”
