Relatives of television presenter Kristian Digby have told of their shock as police investigated whether he died when a solo sex game went tragically wrong.

A post-mortem examination is expected to find the BBC daytime host suffocated while deliberately starving himself of oxygen to heighten sexual arousal.

The extremely dangerous practice of auto-erotic asphyxiation is said to increase sexual pleasure and participants employ masks, ligatures or even plastic bags to achieve the desired effect.

Officers said they were officially treating the circumstances of his death as "unexplained".



In a statement his relatives said: "The family are saddened and in a state of shock at the loss of Kristian who they loved very much."

Digby was pronounced dead at his home in Richford Road, Newham, east London, after an ambulance crew was called shortly before 8am on Monday.

Colleagues and friends have reacted with shock, describing the To Buy Or Not To Buy host as a "lovely guy" who brought a "real sense of energy and warmth to all the shows he presented".

Liam Keelan, Controller of BBC Daytime, said the 32-year-old would be "very much missed".

The property expert worked on a string of shows including Double Agents, Living In The Sun, House Swap and Buy It, Sell It, Bank It.
