British TV presenter found dead in London flat

BBC's Kristian Digby found in unexplained circumstances

LONDON -- BBC television presenter Kristian Digby has been found dead in "unexplained" circumstances at his east London flat, police and the corporation said on Tuesday.

The 32-year-old, who fronted a string of property shows, including BBC 1's "To Buy or Not to Buy," was found at his Newham address early on Monday.

Digby, who was also a budding film director, was pronounced dead at the scene. The Metropolitan Police said they were treating his death as "unexplained."

"Kristian was a much-loved and talented presenter for BBC Daytime. He brought a real sense of energy and warmth to all the shows he presented for us and will be sorely missed," the BBC said in a statement.

During his career he presented ITV's Nightlife, That Gay Show and The Holiday Show on BBC as well as being series director on The Million Pound Property Experiment.

His agent Jo Wander said: "I am devastated by the loss. He was a lovely guy and a very talented presenter and director.

"I will miss him hugely and my thoughts at this time are with his family and his many friends. He will be sorely missed."
