TV presenter 'distraught' after tragedy
TROWBRIDGE-born children's television presenter Mark Speight says he is "absolutely distraught" after the death of his fiancee.
The 42-year-old, who presents art show SMart on the BBC, was questioned by police because the body of Natasha Collins was found in the flat they shared.
A statement on behalf of Mr Speight, released today, said: "At the moment no-one knows what happened. Mark found her body in the bathroom and immediately called an ambulance and the police.
"The police are conducting further enquiries and a post-mortem is underway.
"Mark was the only other person present in the flat and has therefore been questioned by police as a matter of course. He is assisting police with their enquiries and had nothing to do with Natasha's death."
It added: "Mark is absolutely distraught at the loss of Natasha and hopes that everyone will appreciate what a very sad time this is for both Mark and Natasha's family."
Mr Speight shot to fame as the presenter of Children's ITV Saturday morning show, Scratchy & Co and Miss Collins had previously co-presented BBC show, See It, Saw It.
