Doncaster pop star Louis Tomlinson is in mourning following the death of his grandma.

The One Direction singer’s stepdad Mark’s mum Margaret passed away on January 4.

Confirming the sad news, Mark wrote on Twitter: “The birds are singing today. Rest in Peace my beautiful Mum. I’m going to really miss you.”

Mrs Tomlinson died at her home in Bessacarr aged 69 following a short illness.

Her husband Keith also sent out tributes, tweeting: “There was never one day in 47 years of being married to me that Mrs T didn’t tell me she loved me.”

He added in a later message yesterday: “So much love from you for Mrs T. You have been so kind to me today. I thank you all from the bottom of my breaking heart.”

Keith and Margaret have been grandparents to Louis, 22, almost his entire life after his mother, Johannah married Mark when he was still a toddler.

Louis is close to his grandparents on both sides of his family, featuring them in the video to the band’s song Story Of My Life.
