Colin Fry, the star of Most Haunted, 6ixth Sense with Colin Fry and Psychic Private Eyes, has passed away after a battle with terminal lung cancer. He was 53.
"It is with much sadness and regret to announce that the Reverend Colin Fry, Britain's most loved and respected Spiritualist Medium, lost his fight against cancer and passed away peacefully in hospital in the early hours at 2:50am this morning (25 AUGUST 2015).
Colin brought a lot of comfort to his audiences in a career which spanned for more than 30 years. Our sympathies and condolences go out to Colin's family and friends.
We, as his management, for many years would like to add that he was the most charming man with the biggest heart, who devoted his life to helping others, and he will be sorely missed.
May his dear soul rest in peace," says a brief statement on his website.
Merseyside medium Derek Acorah led the tributes on Twitter.
He said: "It is with great sadness that I learned of the passing of my dear friend Colin Fry. Condolences to his family and friends."
Colin's manager David Hahn said: "He had a very big heart. Since the diagnosis, he'd been very upbeat. Because of what he does he had no fear of death. He often told me he had no fear of dying."
