Presenter Paddy tweets tribute after Take Me Out contestant dies

By Katie Archer

Paddy McGuinness tweeted a dedication to Charlie.

Take Me Out presenter Paddy McGuinness has said Saturday’s episode was a tribute to one of its contestants, who has since died.

Comedian Paddy, who fronts the ITV dating show, tweeted his dedication to the man who had been looking for love, named only as Charlie.

He was inundated with viewers sharing their sympathies with Charlie’s loved ones.

Someone who seemed to know Charlie replied to the tweet.

Paddy usually live-tweets the action from each episode, but as a mark of respect to Charlie, he posted no further updates during the show.

A Thames spokesman said: “It is with great sadness that we have learnt of the tragic news regarding Charlie.

“Our thoughts and best wishes go to his family and friends. We ask that you respect the family’s privacy at this time.”
