SINGER ALVIN STARDUST has died at the age of 72.

His manager confirmed that the English entertainer passed away today after a short illness.

Stardust, whose real name was Bernard Jewry but who originally took the stage name Shane Fenton, had a string of glamrock hits throughout the 1970s and 1980s, including Jealous Mind, My Coo Ca Choo, and I Feel Like Buddy Holly.

He had a total of seven Top Ten hits in a career which lasted almost 25 years.

He had just finished recording a new album – his first since 1984 – which was due to be released at the beginning of November.
