British singer Robert Palmer has died suddenly aged 54.

The ADDICTED TO LOVE star suffered a fatal heart attack in Paris.

He had been in the French capital on a two-day break with partner MARY AMBROSE after filming a TV appearance in England. He had been due to return to his home in Switzerland following the visit.

His manager MICK CATER said he suffered the heart attack in the early hours of this morning (26SEP03).

Cater added, "I can't say anything else at this point, I'm just in shock."

Palmer enjoyed huge success as a solo artist in the 1980s with hits including SHE MAKES MY DAY, I DIDN'T MEAN TO TURN YOU ON, SIMPLY IRRESISTIBLE and SOME GUYS HAVE ALL THE LUCK.
