Ryan Thomas’ soul singer father Dougie James has passed away… as tributes flood in for the ‘wonderful’ Manchester icon who toured The Jackson 5

Ryan Thomas’ father Dougie has passed away, according to BBC Radio Manchester.

It was reported on Saturday morning that the 70s music legend Dougie, who was the lead singer of Dougie James And The Soul Train, has died. 

BBC Manchester’s Mike Shaft remembered Dougie and said: ‘He played all over the north west, in those days when they were playing places like Golden Garter they’d have bands on, an American band and then Dougie James.

‘Wonderful guy, always a smile on his face. Always a happy story. Very sad news.’

Dougie’s cause of death is currently unconfirmed.

Dougie was father to Ryan, 35, and twin sons, former Emmerdale actor Adam and ex-Love Island contestant, Scott, both 31.

At the height of their fame, Dougie’s band toured with The Jackson Five and his sons have inherited his love of the spotlight. ‘It’s always been in our blood – we’ve always wanted to entertain,’ Adam said earlier this year.
