Former UK Eurovision contestant Ronnie Carroll has died days after being registered to stand as a candidate in Hampstead and Kilburn for next month’s general election
The 1960s singing star, who twice represented the UK at the Eurovision Song Contest, died yesterday at the Marie Curie Hospice in Hampstead, aged 80.
Mr Carroll’s friend Rainbow George had only recently handed in his nomination papers to stand as the Euro-Visionary candidate in Hampstead and Kilburn.
The Northern Irish singer, who lived off Prince of Wales Road in Chalk Farm, was married at one stage to That Was The Week That Was star Millicent Martin.
