TV medium Colin Fry has died at the age of 53, his management has announced.

The spiritualist, whose shows included Most Haunted and 6ixth Sense With Colin Fry, was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer in April.

He cancelled his 6ixth Sense Anniversary Tour after his diagnosis.

Fry's manager, David Hahn, said: "He had a very big heart. Since the diagnosis, he'd been very upbeat. Because of what he does, he had no fear of death."

He added: "He often told me he had no fear of dying."

A statement on his official website said: "It is with much sadness and regret to announce that the Reverend Colin Fry, Britain's most loved and respected spiritualist medium, lost his fight against cancer and passed away peacefully in hospital in the early hours, at 02:50 [BST] this morning.

"Colin brought a lot of comfort to his audiences in a career which spanned for more than 30 years.

"Our sympathies and condolences go out to Colin's family and friends.

"We, as his management for many years, would like to add that he was the most charming man, with the biggest heart, who devoted his life to helping others, and he will be sorely missed."
