Reality Star David Gest Found Dead In Hotel
16:28, UK, Tuesday 12 April 2016

Reality TV star and music producer David Gest has died, his friend Imad Handi said in a statement.

The 62-year-old was found dead in the Four Seasons hotel in Westferry Circus on Tuesday morning.

A Scotland Yard spokesman said: "A post-mortem will be held in due course. Next of kin are in the process of being informed."

The former Celebrity Big Brother star was married to Liza Minnelli from 2002-2003, but they only officially divorced in 2007.

He was also known for being a close friend of the late Michael Jackson.

The TV personality gained a following in the UK recently when he appeared on Celebrity Big Brother.

Mr Handi said: "David was truly larger than life. He was not just a huge talent and a dear friend but a showbiz icon.

"I know he will be missed by millions of fans around the world, and particularly in Britain, who came to love his charm and blistering one-liners.

"If I may steal the words of one eminent critic, David was a natural star and a genuine celebrity. I will miss him desperately."

I didn't know who he was until I read Liza Minnelli and then it all came back.

I think he was rather famous for being famous, Lily? Then he found a niche spot that fitted him perfectly on UK TV?

I didn't know he had done that in the UK, Bonny. However, yes, why not?

He seems to have been a genuinely nice guy, Lily. He was living in York - about as un-Hollywood as you can get. Maybe he was more at ease in the UK because he wasn't thought of as just Mr Minelli?

That's very possible, Bonny. He didn't get much work over here to be honest.
