Stars including James Corden, Olly Murs and Charlie Puth have sent their support to Louis Tomlinson following the tragic death of his 18-year-old sister Félicité.

The heartbreaking news comes just over two years after Félicité and Louis' mother, Johannah Deakin, lost her long battle with leukaemia.

She is said to have lived in the Earls Court area of West London, England. The cause of her death is still to be confirmed, but it is reported to have been a suspected heart attack.

According to The Sun, Louis has been left "devastated and distraught" by the death of his sister, who has been praised as "loveable, caring, bright and beautiful" by "sources close to the One Direction singer".

A spokesperson for the Met said: "Police were called by the London Ambulance Service at 12.52pm to a residential address in SW5".

The 18-year-old's death is now being treated as "unexplained". An ambulance was called, but paramedics were unable to revive her and she was pronounced dead at the scene.

Felicite was well-known on social media and regularly shared posts with her 1.3 million followers on Instagram.

At the time he described the performance as "harder than I ever imagined".

It is understood that Tomlinson, who is reportedly in London for a now-cancelled appearance on Friday night's Comic Relief, was told of her death on Wednesday.
