Singer Lil' Chris - who shot to fame on reality show Rock School - has died aged 24.
Suffolk Police said they responded to the "sudden death" of a 24-year-old man in Lowestoft on Monday morning at around 11.45 am.
Officers are not treating the death as suspicious, a Suffolk Police spokesperson added.
The singer, real name Chris Hardman, starred in Channel 4 series Rock School in 2006 when he was just 15.
He managed to land a music deal after the show and his debut single ‘Checkin’ It Out’ reached number three in the charts.
Fans and other industry figures have been paying tribute to Hardman on Twitter.
Caroline Flack, who met the star on children's show TMI, described the singer as such a "lovely guy".
Oh my god . Lil Chris . He was a regular guest on TMI. Always always such a polite lovely guy . That's so sad ?
Magician Dynamo also tweeted, saying:
RIP Chris Hardman aka lil Chris :( only 24 years old so sad!
Tom Mann, a member of X Factor boyband Stereo Kicks, described him as a "class act".
