Geordie duo Ant and Dec have paid their respects to the late Tara Palmer-Tomkinson on Twitter.
The TV pair tweeted:
“so sad to hear of the passing of TP-T. She was a true one off with a huge, generous heart. Our thoughts are with her family #RIPTPT”.
The former socialite and goddaughter of the Prince of Wales became close friends with the TV stars after appearing on ‘I’m a Celebrity’ in 2002.
The self confessed ‘IT’ girl won over the hearts of the public on the first ever season of the hit show finishing second to Radio DJ Tony Blackburn. She then went on to join the lads in Australia when she presented the spin off show ‘I’m a Celebrity Get me Out of Here…Now’.
Ms Palmer Tomkinson was found dead in her London home yesterday at the age of 45 after being diagnosed with a non-malignant brain tumour last year.
An spokesman from the Metropolitan police said the death was being treated as “unexplained” but that they were not treating the death as suspicious.
