Sad.  I'm sure they haven't released the cause of death yet?

 

 

They haven't, just that it came as a total shock and unexpected to anybody in their life.

Oh my God, that's HORRIBLY sad! He was so young????

 

I hope whatever it was it was quick and painless... he literally just posted something on his Instagram a few days back and looked perfectly healthy.

Nooo, that’s such awful news, such a great person. Her BBC documentary about being queer in the traveller community was absolutely fantastic and her dedication to nursing, even going back to it during the COVID filming break of UK2 was so commendable. What an absolute loss to the world and the community here in the UK. RIP :heart2:
