The former Coronation Street actress has passed away aged 38.
Former Coronation Street actress and Charles Bronson's ex-wife, Paula Williamson, has died aged 38.
Staffordshire Police confirmed her death today, stating they had found Williamson's body this morning at a house in Sneyd Green, in the Stoke-on-Trent area.
Police said they are not treating her death as suspicious and a postmortem will take place to determine her cause of death.
Recently, the ex-Corrie actress had filed for divorce from one of Britain's most infamous criminal, Charles Bronson, after she married him at a chapel in Wakefield Prison back in November 2017.
According to sources, the nuptials took 2 hours, with Bronson cuffed the whole time.
Paula met Bronson in prison at the end of 2016 after writing to him as a penpal.
She had previously acted in Coronation Street as an unnamed nurse, and had also appeared in shows like Emmerdale, Hollyoaks and Scott & Bailey.
She made an appearance on Loose Women last year, breaking down on air as she described how "heartbroken" she was about their split.
