Liz McClarnon checked in with fans on her blog at MySpace (@lizmcclarnon) on Monday (October 19), commenting on the shocking death of Boyzone star Stephen Gately, working in the studio, attending parties, and appearing on ITV’s ‘This Morning’. The former Atomic Kitten writes:
Firstly, I have to say I am deeply saddened by the news about Stephen Gately! As you all know I have been a Boyzone fan since they began and I was lucky enough to know him, once my own career began. Last year I took my oldest friend Aimee to meet the Boyz in Liverpool (she adored Stephen) and she was so happy to finally meet him. (I posted the pic on Twitter) Stephen took time for people. He always made you feel like he was really interested in what you were up to etc. He was a good, good man! God, Saturday was such a sad day for so many people!! All I can do is wish his family, my deepest empathy!
