TV host Mark Speight ‘found dead’ - A body found at Paddington railway station is believed to be that of missing children’s TV presenter Mark Speight, police say. The body has not yet been formally identified.

I cannot tell you how much I am both upset and angered by this news. Not only is it tragic that the events that followed the equally tragic death of his fiancee may have ultimately lead to his own death, it is also tragic that the nation may have lost one of its best children’s presenters.

... and that’s all I’ve got to say about that.

Yes, that's him.

To be honest with you, although Amy loves the programme, I used to watch out for the tell-tale signs that indicated that Mark was going to do a Big Picture at the end of the show, and then I wouldn't bother watching the programme if I didn't see those signs.

For me, he was the only reason I watched that programme.
