Robin Windsor - former pro on Strictly Come Dancing - is discovered dead in a London hotel room at the age of 44.

Former Strictly Come Dancing star Robin Windsor has died at the age of 44.

The pro dancer appeared on the reality show from 2010 to 2013, partnering with celebs including Anita Dobson, Deborah Meaden, Lisa Riley and Patsy Kensit.

The star is believed to have been discovered in a London hotel room on Tuesday, days after he returned to the capital from performing on a cruise in South Africa.

The BBC said in a statement: "The whole Strictly Come Dancing family are deeply saddened to hear the news about our dear friend Robin Windsor.

"He was not only an exceptionally talented dancer and choreographer but also a caring, considerate and kind person both on and off the dancefloor. Our thoughts are with his friends and family at this extremely difficult time.

In response to speculation about Windsor's cause of death online, his family said: "We would like to thank everyone for the outpouring of love and celebration of our beloved Robin.

"While we understand that there is a huge public and media interest around his passing, we as a family need time to process our shock and grief.

"We ask for the needs of our family and friends to be taken into consideration and for our privacy to be respected at this difficult time.

"We would ask that the constant media speculation stop. As we have further information we will share a statement in due course."
