Thats horrible. The explanation or lack of it regarding the circumstances of the death are a bit vexing.

That's a shame. I always envied his energy and stuff...always the ones you least expect.

Sad tho. :(

This is upsetting news. We're are regular watchers of "To buy or not to buy" and he was a great presenter.

What the hell is going on with celebs!

It is so sad, made sadder by the other recent deaths too.

Premature death is always sad. For other than his family and friends we have no right to pry into the details or circumstances other than what the coroner reports. Intruding into grief seems to be so commonin the last couple of days when it is a "celebrity" If you are really sad then respect bereavement.

Wow, found dead!? Especially with the fact that his death is unexplained, it's really strange. I "hope" it was just premature natural death and not something even more horrible.

I'll miss his shows on BBC One...

A bit strange really. I expect this of Primetime / after the watershed TV presenters but for the host of a lighthearted property programme this is quite unexpected.

I always preferred Homes Under The Hammer anyway. I didn't like Kristian's presenting but don't think he should be dead at 32 either.

One newspaper is suggesting his death was due to auto-erotic asphyxiation. But this is unconfirmed.

He was a great presenter. Openly gay too like Alistair Appleton another BBC daytime presenter.

RIP

Wow this is so weird, with Steven Gately, Alexander McQueen, and now Christian Digby there seems to be a rash of premature gay celeb deaths going on. So sad, he was full of energy and a decent TV presenter.

I thought he was very watchable, and remember thinking many times how much I admired his dynamism and energy. Is a real shame.

Probably not the place for this - but I much preferred him to Alistair Appleton, who can grate a bit. :/

Several papers are saying it was a sex game particularly the anti-gay daily mail. (they thing gay weddings killed the dinosaurs and caused global warming.) However I'd not read anything into it quite yet since there still has been no official word..

They are probably still informing his family of details which is why comments from official sorces are not that forthcoming..

It is a sad fact Kristian has died at such a young age. The results of the postmortem turned out to be inconclusive, they are now waiting the results of tests carried out to see if they reveal the cause of death

Why do people do this auto asphyxiation thing? I honestly don't get it

In fairness Kristian Digby's death has been found to be officially unexplained by a pathologist and so far there have been no reliable reports on how he might have died.

I was asking irrespective.

There was a very interesting article written in Vanity Fair about 18 years ago; sadly around the same time that a close friend's son died from it. It would appear to me that there is some real sexual high coupled with a danger that people think will never happen to them.

Of course. Those are the mechanics of it.
But how do we explain the willingness to expose oneself to this obvious danger?
Come to the edge of losing consciousness but not tumble over ... and into death?

I know I keep bangin on about this, but I really envied his joy of life, ironically. I wonder if a risk-taking element is bound up in that kind of personality, tho?

Also (although his death is still unexplained) what effect will his death have? He's been spoken of as a great example for gays, but won't this manner of death have the opposite effect...and possibly reinforce unhelpful stereotypes about gay people being hedonistic and reckless?

(Sorry if that offends anyone - just posing a question).

Yep, that's the line the Daily Mail seems to be taking, snidely.

Wouldn't you know it? Is Jan Muir taking a leading role in that little campaign of slurs based on totally unfounded rumour by any chance? :rolleyes:

Why do people take drugs? Why do people drive cars really fast?

I guess once tried, some people find the pleasure so good its worth it. People like to see how far they can go. This is just another manifestation of that.
