The Pop Idol star died at the age of 41 this week. His family said he was found dead in his US apartment, and his cause of death remains unknown.

On August 11, the singer was reportedly found unresponsive in the Berkman apartments opposite the Mayo clinic treatment centre (it is not known whether he was receiving treatment).
MailOnline cites a source as saying he had checked in under the name Morgan Brown.
Danesh Campbell and Butler were said to have been introduced by Rod Stewart and became close in recent months.
