Such terrible, sad news. I used to watch Smart, and still sometimes do. It's incredibly sad.

The body of a man, believed to be missing TV presenter Mark Speight, has been found in a remote area of London's Paddington station, police have said.

Officers are treating the death as "unexplained" but have confirmed that the man had not been hit by a train. Mr Speight, 42, disappeared last Monday, three months after the death of his fiancee, Natasha Collins.

She was discovered in a bath at their flat in London after the pair had taken cocaine, sleeping pills and alcohol.

This is really sad news...the poor guy had to go through dealing with his beloved girlfriend's death and all sorts of other things. He was undoubtly a talented artist and a great presenter. He really inspired me...and now he's gone. :(

RIP Mark Speight and Natasha Collins, may your souls rest together forever.

Thatís really tragic. When I heard that he had gone missing some days ago, I thought he just needed time to himself and would probably turn up again soon. I thought of Stephen Fry who once did something similar.

Very sad news. :(

I know. :( I thought he was great, and I've been worried that he might end up hurting himself. I hope he and his girlfriend can rest in peace.

I expected it to happen to be honest. He was going through some rough times and I had a feeling he wouldn't make it through. Its a real tragedy as I used to warch Smart religiously as an artistic child. It seems our generation in the UK grew up with him on our screens.

Well this is the latest;

During the brief hearing, the coroner also read a statement from one of his officers confirming that the deceased had been formally identified yesterday as Mark Warwick Fordham Speight, born on August 6, 1965, in Wolverhampton.

The court heard that he had been identified as a result of documentation found on his person and registration details had been provided by his father, Oliver Speight.
