Boyzone star Stephen Gately has died at the age of 33.
Details of the Irish singer's death remain unclear, but it is believed he died on Saturday (10Oct09) in Majorca, Spain, where he was on vacation.
A source tells the News of The World, "It looks like he went out for a few drinks, then got back, fell asleep and never woke up."
Boyzone manager Louis Walsh tells the publication, "We're all absolutely devastated. I'm in complete shock. I was only with him on Monday at an awards ceremony. We don't know much about what's happened yet... He was a great man."
Last year (08) Gately reunited with Ronan Keating and the other members of Boyzone, who are planning to fly to Majorca to mourn with the singer's family and friends.
The pop star hit the headlines a decade ago when he 'came out' as a gay man. In March, 2006 he wed his partner Andrew Cowles in a civil union.
Born in Ireland in 1976, Gately joined Boyzone in 1993.
As well as his career with the boyband, Gately also enjoyed solo success and hit the stage as the star of London's Joseph & The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.
