Last night viewers were distraught when they discovered that Take Me Out romantic Charlie Watkins had died since the show was recorded earlier in the year.

Now it has been revealed that the handsome 22 year old had committed suicide. His family have revealed that Charlie had been living with mental health issues for many years, finding it hard to cope following the death of his mother when he was just nine years old.

Viewers were winded when Paddy McGuinness later posted on Twitter: “Tonight’s Take Me Out is in memory of Charlie. A fantastic lad who I’m sure will be greatly missed by his wonderful friends & family. RIP.”
