60 Minute Makeover’ presenter Michelle Watt has died suddenly, at the age of just 38.

Sadly, Michelle’s death isn’t the first time a family tragedy has hit the former lightweight champ, who lost his son, Jim Jr, in a car accident when he was just 17 years old.

Michelle named her five-year-old daughter, Jaymi, in her late brother’s honour.

The Daily Record have reported that Michelle’s parents, Jim and Margaret, were “too upset” to speak publicly, but her former ‘Club Cupid’ co-presenter, Des Clarke, has paid his respects.

Describing her death as “devastating”, Des spoke fondly of Michelle to the Scottish newspaper, recalling: “My memories of Michelle are just all so happy.

“She was just really fun to be around and such a lovely, genuine person and so hardworking.

“I never remember her having a bad day. She was a beautiful-looking girl and so full of joy… This news is just a total shock. I’m actually still shaking.”

Make-up artist Craig Alexander Wilson reiterated Des’s comments, adding: “She was fun-loving and energetic and always spoke with her dad - the closeness about their relationship was evident. I know she was his No1 fan. I can’t imagine how the family are feeling.”

A spokesperson for Police Scotland has said that there are no suspicious circumstances surrounding the TV presenter’s death.
