After news of his passing broke, many stars took to Twitter to honour David.

Those included the likes of Stephanie Davis, Gemma Collins, Scotty T and Darren Day, who all appeared on the most recent series of 'CBB' alongside David in January.

Those stars who appeared alongside David on 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' in 2006, also paid their respects:

Many other of his celebrity friends also shared some kind words:

David was about to embark on a UK tour, titled ‘David Gest Is Not Dead But Alive With Soul’ - a reference to the now infamous ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ mix-up, which saw Tiffany Pollard confuse Gest with Angie Bowie’s ex-husband David.

David won himself thousands of new fans on the show, but was forced to quit due to serious ill-health.
