Spandau Ballet star Martin Kemp took to Twitter yesterday (August 1) to announce the death of his ‘special girl’ Jackie.

Jackie was a fan of 60-year-old Martin and his 1980s band Spandau Ballet.

Martin sadly tweeted, “So so sad to hear of the passing of one of my special girls!

“The front row will always miss you @macdonald1jackie rest in peace!”

He went on to vow: “I will never forget you singing along to every word at every show!

“The SPANDAU fam and I will miss you. Thoughts with your family and friends.”
