It was confirmed that the music producer had been found dead in a London hotel room on Tuesday (12 April), aged 62.
After news of his passing broke, many stars took to Twitter to honour David.
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.
