Biggest Loser trainer Angie Dowds found dead
The body of Angie Dowds has reportedly been found on a beach, it has been reported.
The personal fitness trainer, who was last year sacked from ITV1′s Biggest Loser series – is believed to have jumped to her death from the cliffs at Beachy Head, Eastbourne, East Sussex and her body was later found on the beach below.
It is believed that the blonde star was suffering from depression, after facing a tough year in her personal life. She split from fiancee Corrie Preece just a few months ago and some claim she had suffered from drink and drug dependency problems in the past.
A Sussex Police spokesman confirmed the news today, stating:
‘Just after 4.30pm on Sunday members of the public reported that a woman was seen to jump or fall from the top of cliffs at Beachy Head.
‘Coastguards found the body of woman at the foot of the cliffs about an hour later.
‘There are no suspicious circumstances and it is believed that the body may be that of a 42-year old woman from London.’
Angie was sacked by ITV bosses last year, after she was caught telling her contestants to cheat. The fitness trainer has worked on the ITV weight loss show since 2005, but during the last series, producers overheard her telling her team to eat just fruit and nuts ahead of their next weigh-in, in a bid to drop pounds more rapidly.
Insiders say that she remained friendly with the show;s presenter Dabina McCall and she paid tribute to her pal on Twitter last night, writing:
‘Rest in peace Angie Dowds @angechops. So so sad.’
On a fan group dedicated to Angie on Facebook, fans posted messages of condolence. One wrote:
