Wife of singer James Morrison found dead | UK News

Gill Catchpole, the wife of singer James Morrison, has died. 

Ms Catchpole, who had two daughters aged 15 and five with the singer, was found dead in her home in Whitminster, Gloucester, on Friday.

In a statement, Gloucestershire Constabulary 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.”

The couple were together for around two decades, and met after Ms Catchpole moved into Morrison’s mother’s home as a lodger.

He previously said meeting Ms Catchpole was a “fairytale” and had tried to impress her by “serenading” her with Stevie Wonder songs.
