Actor, Singer And TV Personality Chris Hardman (aka Lil’ Chris) Passes Away At Age 24


Chris Hardman aka Lil’ Chris has died at the age of 24.

Lil’ Chris found fame in his mid-teens via Gene Simmons’ Rock School show, before signing to RCA Records. Somewhat unexpectedly his 2006 debut album was extremely brilliant.

He went on to have his own TV show and starred in James Bourne’s Loserville musical, while continuing to make occasional music. Another career highlight must surely have been the ‘festive sketchbook’ he did for Popjustice back in 2006.

Back in December Chris wrote on Twitter: "I'm planning to come back again! Hopefully this time for a little longer! Keep sticking around for updates."

However, earlier this month, the musician admitted he was considering giving up his career as a singer.



After news of his death emerged, tributes flooded in for the young singer from fellow celebrities.
