Zoe Ball's boyfriend found dead at home

Zoe Ball's boyfriend has been found dead at his home in south London.

The "Strictly Come Dancing: It Takes Two" host is "completely and utterly devastated" after "Antiques Roadshow" cameraman Billy Yates, whom she's been dating since the beginning of the year, was discovered lifeless by his friends last night (04.05.17).

A close friend of the 42-year-old presenter told The Sun newspaper: "Zoe is overcome with grief. She is completely and utterly devastated. Billy had made her happy again after the most horrendous year when her marriage broke down.

"This was completely out of the blue. She had no feeling that this was coming and is in total shock. As far as we know this occurred at his house in south London and it was friends who raised the alarm. She's going to need a lot of time to grieve.

"This just feels so unfair because Zoe had finally found happiness with Billy and had so many exciting plans for their future. It's devastating. There's nothing else other than devastation today."
