Daytime television presenter Michelle Watt has died aged 38.

The TV personality, best known for presenting 60 Minute Makeover, was found at the Stirlingshire home she shared with husband Paul Kerr, 43, and daughter Jaymi, five.

Police Scotland, called to the home at around 6.15pm on Wednesday, confirmed to The Independent that the death is not being treated as suspicious.

Daughter of boxing legend Jim Watt, she worked on a variety of TV shows – fronting the National Lottery Daily Play and the Live New Year Show – and was known in the industry for her warm personality and hard-work.

It is the second tragedy to strike the family. Her elder brother Jim died in 1995 in a car-crash aged just 17. Ms Watt, who named her daughter after her deceased brother, told The Sun that her family “miss him every day.”

TV personalities and local celebrities expressed their sadness over her death, with Loraine Kelly – a champion of Ms Watts when she started out in the industry – tweeting: “Absolutely shocked to hear of death of Michelle Watt. Lovely woman and a fantastic mum. Thoughts with her family and everyone who loved her.”
