Stars pay tribute to 80s music icon Steve Strange

Tributes have been paid to the Welsh New Romantic icon Steve Strange after he died following a heart attack.

Born in Newbridge, the 55-year-old became famous in the 1980s as the front man for the group Visage, best known for their hit Fade To Grey.

Ex-Visage bandmates Midge Ure and Rusty Egan said they were "devastated" to hear of his "untimely passing", adding: "Steve was a major face of the 80s."

Boy George tweeted he was "heartbroken" about the death of Strange, saying he was "such a big part of my life".

Nick Palit looks back on his life.
