Singer songwriter Lynsey de Paul has died aged 64 in a London Hospital on Wednesday of a suspected brain haemorrhage, after complaining of severe headaches. Her many friends and admirers were in shock at the news.

The star used her distinctive voice to score a number of top 20 hits including 'Sugar Me' in 1972, which went to number 5 in the charts. The singer teamed up with Mike Moran to enter 'Rock Bottom' in the Eurovision Song contest in 1977 and came second. The prolific songwriter was the first woman to win the Ivor Novello Songwriting Award with 'Won't Somebody Dance With Me'.

Her friend Esther Rantzen paid tribute to a talented singer, composer and artist. "Despite being a huge star, she was loyal and generous friend and her passing is a tragic loss". Born Lynsey Monckton Rubin in 1971, the daughter of Meta and Herbert Rubin, she grew up in a Jewish family in Cricklewood London. She was abused by her father, moved out and changed her name. Despite several offers, she never married, but was romantically linked to a number of high profile men.

The vegetarian and animal rights campaigner was in good form when she attended the RHS Chelsea Flower Show in May. Lynsey de Paul will be remembered for her profusion of songs, and her quiet friendly positive personality.
