Mark Speight: 1965-2008

Mark Speight, the well-known and mouch-loved rubber-faced children's TV presenter has been found dead in London. Suicide is suspected.

Speight, known for presenting the long-running television programme 'SMart', was said to have been depressed following the drugs-related death of his fiancee Natasha Collins, disappearing just days after the inquest into her demise.

A sad end to a cautionary tale of the dangers of drug misuse, Speight will be much missed by those in the entertainment industry.
