UB40 singer in hospital after suffering a stroke

UB40 singer in hospital after suffering a stroke

The 62-year-old, who replaced his brother Ali as frontman for the band in 2008, is said to be in recovery and is "up and about".

A statement released by the British reggae group said: "We can confirm that our lead singer and brother Duncan Campbell was taken to hospital after suffering a stroke.

"While we can report that he is already up and about, we ask fans to respect Duncan and the family's privacy as he works his way back to what we all hope will be a strong and speedy recovery.

"We look forward to seeing you all on the road next spring."

The band announced last week that UK tour dates due to take place in December had been rescheduled to March next year because of the coronavirus pandemic.

UB40 formed in Birmingham in the late 1970s, with Ali Campbell as the lead singer, and are best known for hits including Red Red Wine, Kingston Town, Rat In Mi Kitchen, Higher Ground and their cover of Elvis Presley's (I Can't Help) Falling In Love with You.

Duncan joined the band and took over as frontman 12 years ago, after Ali acrimoniously left over a disagreement about management.

The original lead singer has been highly critical of his replacement and has said watching his brother perform the band's songs "makes my skin crawl".

He has since toured as part of the breakaway group UB40 Featuring Ali, Astro & Mickey.

Duncan and Ali's brother Robin Campbell remains a member of the original UB40.
