I haven't posted since 2012 but hearing this devastating news made me wanna log on.

Colin was a very beautiful soul, inside and out, and one of my bestest buddies on here back in the day. So sad to hear of his passing.

Good-bye my friend :(

Seeing all of these old faces come back to pay their respects - reminds me of how much more I used to love UKMIX! And Colin was a big part of that for all of us, clearly.

I remember him when he was a regular member here. I don't think I've ever talked to him a lot but I knew that he was always a good guy. RIP! <3 :cry:

:cry: Awful news. I remember him for Girls Aloud and frankness, too.

Article on the funeral with pic of his appearance on Countdown (aired last February). :o I might have seen that and not realised it was him! :lol: ... -the-cops/

Terrible news, it's like we've lost one of the family, what a very bright young man he was, such a sad loss.

Oh no Colin :cry:

Just saw on facebook he passed away.

He will be dearly missed. As a big Girls Aloud fan he always made me laugh... and always beat me to opening the Girls Aloud topics.

So sad right now, We never met, but he had a huge impact in my life growing up as a teenager in Portugal.

Thank you Colin. RIP

I'm another who is back after reading this sad news on Facebook :(

One of my fellow Girls Aloud fans, I remember us having many a chat about those girls, and I still remember the time he got mad at me for posting about one of Cheryl Cole's solo albums before he got a chance to :lol:

He was so young, it's such a huge shame.

RIP Col.

Shocking news and makes you wonder if there are other absent members from here who are also deceased. Rest in peace.

The driver has now been arrested thankfully.

Gosh this is so sad. I remember many a discussion over Girls Aloud back in the day, and the panic when we struggled to find online streams of Radio 1 to listen to a new single. I had wondered where he had disappeared to, but never did I expect to hear news such as this.

I remember counting so many votes for him on various Favourite Members countdowns.

Tragic to think how he died. You never expect anything like this to happen to anyone you know.

RIP my friend.

I am heartbroken. We had many interactions on here and on MSN back when I posted here regularly (2007-2009). He was such a delight to talk to and I have so many happy memories from those times. We were like school girls back then, gushing to each other about our crushes. Although I never hinted or told him, I always had a little crush on him. Though I’m sure many members did!

He was also one of very few members to show an active interest in the music I liked, including J-pop. Sadly, looking back, I was too self-centered to ask him about songs he was passionate about. I have never heard a single Girls Aloud song in my life (since I live in the US). Clearly, that’s a testament to the type of person he was. I bet he would have loved to send me some Girls Aloud songs, but he was the charming, selfless guy who would let me express my identity first and foremost. I did locate his last.FM page and I’m listening to some of his all-time most listened to tracks, to repay his kindness from so many years ago. Maybe it is too late, but I would love to fall in love with some of these songs and share the music he loved with others, like he did for me. I actually do adore the first one I listened to, Girls Aloud - the Promise. The melody is enchanting and I enjoy the 60’s feel to it. I wish I could talk to him about it.

The circumstances regarding his death are such a shame. I am hoping his friends and family find some comfort and peace eventually. It is so nice to see a large turnout of retired posters to remember him, but it makes complete sense to me, since he was an essential part of that golden era. Rest in peace, Colin.

I'm only reading this now. I'm shocked!! :o

I remember the times when Colin was very active on this forum and he was always so nice and funny. I adored his devotion to Girls Aloud and pop music in general. Such a lovely guy.

May he rest in peace! :(

People come into my restaurant every night of the week absolutely plastered, leave and get into their car accross the road and drive home. It's a joke. No one seems to take any notice until sometihing tragic like this happens. :(
