British pop star MICHELLE HEATON has begun planning her own funeral at the tender age of 27, after being diagnosed with a debilitating heart condition.
The Liberty X bandmember, who is married to singer Andy Scott-Lee, suffers from heart palpitations and may undergo surgery to have a pacemaker fitted.
Heaton says, "When you think every heart beat is your last you have to have conversations about your funeral.
"I've talked to Andy about what to do if I die. I have been forced to have that conversation and talk about those issues with him.
"I'm doing my will now even though I'm only 27."
