THE wife of famous singer James Morrison has tragically died. 

According to national reports, Gill Catchpole, aged 45, was found dead at their home in Whitminster on Friday (January 5). 

Soul singer James Morrison rose to fame with his debut single ‘You Give Me Something’ in 2006 and also had hits including ‘Broken Strings’ and ‘You Make It Real’. 

Gill had recently opened a cafe called the Cotswold Sandwich Box located off the A38 Bristol Road in the car park of the Whitminster Inn.

In 2014, she ran the Stroud Half Marathon and raised almost £2,000 for Nottingham's Children's Hospital's Lewis Mighty fund, which helps children undergoing cancer treatment.

A police presence was spotted in the area over the weekend. 

A Gloucestershire Police spokesperson said: “Police were called to Whitminster at around 9.10am on Friday (January 5) 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.”
