Simon Cowell says that he is "devastated" following the death of Il Divo band member Carlos Marin from coronavirus.

Simon Cowell has paid tribute to Il Divo singer Carlos Marin following his death today at the age of 53.

The Spaniard passed away at a hospital in Manchester after being admitted almost a fortnight ago with coronavirus.

Cowell was responsible for putting together classical quartet Il Divo in 2003, masterminding their career - helping them to over 30 million record sales and more than 2 million concert tickets.

Posting on Twitter late on Sunday, Cowell wrote: "I am finding this so difficult to put into words how I feel right now.

"I am devastated Carlos Marin has passed away. He loved life. He loved performing and always had so much appreciation towards the fans who supported the group from day 1.

"Rest in peace Carlos. I will miss you."
