Tributes have been paid to TV presenter Michelle Watt following her death at the age of 38.
The former 60 Minute Makeover host - daughter of Scottish boxing champion Jim Watt - was found dead at her home in Airth, near Falkirk, on Wednesday.
She had also worked on programmes including Scottish dating show Club Cupid and STV's The Hour.
Daytime TV presenter Lorraine Kelly paid tribute to her on Twitter yesterday, writing: "Absolutely shocked to hear of death of Michelle Watt. Lovely woman and a fantastic mum. Thoughts with her family and everyone who loved her."
Comedian and radio DJ Des Clarke, who hosted the dating show with her, tweeted: "So sad to hear about Michelle Watt. What a lovely person, a pleasure to know and work with. Just tragic. My heart goes out to her family."

A Police Scotland spokesman said officers found her body when they responded to a call.

Her boxer father became world champion in the lightweight division in 1979 and has since worked as a commentator, currently with Sky Sports.
In October 1995, the youngest of Jim Watt's three children died in a car crash aged 17.
Speaking in 2010 about the death of Jim junior, he said: "It was a horrendous time, I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy. It was just terrible and tragic."
