The manager of Hot Chocolate singer Errol Brown says he has died in the Bahamas at age 71. 

Manager Phil Dale said Wednesday the singer, best known for hits “You Sexy Thing” and “It Started With A Kiss,” died of liver cancer. Dale said Brown’s death had come as a surprise, saying “(Brown) had been poorly over the past few months but he never discussed it.”

The manager added “He’d be sadly missed by his friends and family. He was an extremely good personal friend.”

Brown is survived by his wife and two daughters.

Hot Chocolate had numerous chart hits in the 1970s. In 1981, they played at a pre-wedding party for Prince Charles and Lady Diana in Buckingham Palace.
