BBC Radio 2 DJ, Steve Wright DIED from ruptured ulcer in his stomach


BBC Radio 2 DJ Steve Wright died aged 69 from a ruptured ulcer in his stomach, his death certificate has now confirmed.

The veteran radio broadcaster, one of the most familiar voices on the airwaves in the UK, died suddenly at his £2million home in London on February 12.


Wright’s death certificate has now been revealed by BBC News, which said it stated that his causes of death were acute peritonitis and a perforated gastric peptic ulcer.


Peritonitis is an infection of the lining of the stomach, according to the NHS. A perforated ulcer is a rarer complication when the lining of the stomach splits open. 

A relative registered his death at Westminster Register Office last Wednesday, after the coroner’s court confirmed on May 20 that no inquest would be held.

The Metropolitan Police previously said that Wright’s death in the Marylebone area of Central London ‘was unexpected, but is not being treated as suspicious’.
