His manager Phil Dale said that the singer, best known for hits You Sexy Thing and It Started With A Kiss, died of liver cancer.

Dale said Brown’s death had come as a surprise, adding “(Brown) had been poorly over the past few months but he never discussed it”.

He’d be sadly missed by his friends and family. He was an extremely good personal friend.

Brown is survived by his wife and two daughters.
