The Spandau Ballet brothers are being comforted by family and friends following the family tragedy, reports The Mirror.
Retired printer Frank, 79, suffered a heart attack and was pronounced dead at a Bournemouth hospital where Eileen, 77, was being treated for a heart bypass. She died 48 hours later of "a broken heart". A joint funeral is planned for the couple, who were married for 55 years, next week.
"Martin and Gary adored their parents. This has hit them like a double lightning bolt," a friend said.
