Ex-Union J singer George Shelley is said to be heartbroken by the death of his sister Harriet. The 21-year-old student was run over in the street last week and had been in intensive care with severe head injuries. Harriet, who was very close to George, was about to start her uni dissertation at the time of her sad death.

Originally, Harriet was believed to be in a stable condition and mum Toni was praying for her daughter to pull through. However, yesterday Harriet’s condition worsened and, despite attempts from medics, she lost her life.

At the time of writing the family were yet to comment on the young student’s death, but Jaymi Hensley, George’s old Union J band mate, paid tribute to Harriet by posting a broken heart emoji on Twitter. Fans were fast to pass on their condolences. ¬†One fan spoke for many and said: “So much love and prayers for @higeorgeshelley & his family” While another fan said: “RIP angel, my thoughts go out to George and his family at this time.”
