Boyfriend Steve’s marathon run in memory of tragic Bev

TRAGIC popstar Beverley O'Sullivan's boyfriend is running in the Dublin marathon, just one year after her death.

This time last year, Beverley and her boyfriend, Steve Reeves (33), were preparing to go on a trip of a lifetime to India for six weeks.

But their holiday was cut short when the couple (right) were involved in a devastating road accident.

Beverley, from Donaghmede, was the passenger in the car when the tragic accident occurred on the road between Agra and Jaipur.

The stunning 28-year-old sang with group Fifth Avenue, toured with Westlife and was just embarking on a solo singing career.

Her boyfriend, Steve, also suffered serious injuries in the crash but has made a full recovery. Now he has committed to running the Dublin Marathon along with his twin brother and a number of friends.

POIGNANT

It’s a poignant tribute for Beverley, as he completed the 2009 marathon just days before they set off travelling. “It's very tough for her family at the moment – they are remembering every day they saw her before she left,” said friend Joanne Weadick.
