The "talented" host of daytime property shows including To Buy or Not to Buy died at his home in east London, police said.

Ambulance crews were unable to revive the 32-year-old when they arrived at the flat in Newnham at 7.45am.

<!-- BEFORE ACI -->

A Scotland Yard spokesman said: "Police were called to reports of a body of a man in his 30s found at an address in Richford Road, E15.

"Ambulance services attended and life was pronounced extinct. Next of kin were informed and we await formal identification.

"There will be a post-mortem at 12 noon at East Ham mortuary."

Newham CID are investigating the "unexplained" circumstances, a police source added.

The presenter, who was born in Devon to a family of property developers, started his television career hosting Nightlife for ITV.

In 2001, Mr Digby, who was homosexual, presented That Gay Show on BBC Choice.

He went on to front several popular BBC shows, including Double Agents, Living in the Sun, House Swap and Buy it, Sell It, Bank It.

A BBC spokesman said: "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. Our thoughts are with his family at this very difficult time."

Mr Digby was also a director whose short film, Last Train to Demise, won the Melbourne Film Festival Best Student Film in 1998. Words of Deception won him a junior Bafta in 1997.

His agent and friend 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."

Tributes to the television presenter poured in on social networking websites.

Pat Tensell, a librarian, wrote on Twitter: “Shocked by news of Kristian Digby's death. We shook hands last Monday at event in Worcester. He was lovely and a great keynote speaker.â€

Ben Pitchers wrote: “Can't believe Kristian Digby has died. Why does everyone keep dying young? He was a fantastic gay role model and talented broadcaster. RIP.â€

Horrible. I had a very soft spot for him, and I'm very sad that he's gone. :(

It is sad news...

Just incase people don't know who he is... there is a very good video on You Tube compiled and it fully shows this mans presenting abilities.

Hope not. The forums are rife with speculation. Murder, drugs, manslaughter. The usual situation when someone dies. Lets at least hope this was just natural causes.

On a side note, a few years ago on here we were doing a look-a-likes thing. Which celebrities do forum members look like...?

Neil (Geezer) compared Kristian to me..... To this day I still don't see it!

never heard of him to be honest, but shame he seemed to be pretty talented & have a good future in-front of him.

keeps a eye on Jan Moir :doubt:

I will... as long as it's through some crosshairs...

No idea who this guy was, but that IS a very young age...

I was shocked when I switched the news on this morning and heard that he had died. RIP Kristian. I hope that the vultures treat him with more respect than they treated Stephen Gately, although knowing the Daily Mail et al, they'll blame this on his sexuality.

Actually I think Neil may have a point there...

And I don't really have any celebrity lookalikes to be honest, nobody's ever told me I look like anyone famous anyway. Although maybe if I put on a wig I could pass for Uma Thurman as Mia in Pulp Fiction.

Perhaps not now seeing as Kristian is 6ft under, the original photo I thought looked similar to you John was this one posted back in the good ol' days in the ROM section.

Pahahaha. :P What's with all the blurriness in the background? And it was from this lovely thread btw.

I don't think I ever partook in Rate Our Member. Probably just as well anyway given my horrible ugliness...
