Kristian Digby: Sex Games, Property Shows And A Body

by | 2nd, March 2010

digby-1BBC TV presenter Kristian Digby has died. He was 32. His death is “unexplained” in offical circles. The Sun, however, says Digby died from “auto-erotic asphyxiation”. His body was discovered by his “ex-boyfriend”.

The Sun loaded facts:

“BBC star dies as solo sex game goes wrong”

Digby presented the BBC daytime telly show To Buy Or Not To Buy, a turgid format in which punters are shown three houses and invited to buy one. Given that it takes forever to buy a home, nailing an actual sale was never going to be easy. Digby’s shtick was to show the homes to viewers tuning in from their care homes and institutions and maybe get a phone sale.

Digby also appeared in daytime telly shows – each indistinguishable from the next – Double Agents, Living In The Sun, House Swap and Buy It, Sell It, Bank It. You might notice a theme.

Digby’s agent Jo Wander tells media:

“I am devastated by the loss. He was a lovely guy and a very talented presenter and director. I will miss him hugely and my thoughts at this time are with his family and his many friends. He will be sorely missed.”

A post-mortem examination will take place today. the police do not know how Digby died. But the Sun already knows what happened:

BBC presenter Kristian Digby was found dead in his apartment yesterday – after a suspected solo sex game went wrong. The To Buy Or Not To Buy host, 32, is thought to have suffocated while starving himself of oxygen for a thrill.

Police officially described his death as “unexplained” – but detectives do not think it was suicide. A source said last night: “At this time we believe he died from auto-erotic asphyxiation.”

Such are the facts…
