Death at the age of 47: Moderator drops the last heartbreaking post

The BBC presenter Stephen Clements died at the age of only 47 and shortly before left one last public greeting to his family.

His sudden death raises many questions. But in the foreground is the stunned grief of his family and friends. The BBC presenter Stephen Clements died at the age of 47 for reasons unknown so far. On Tuesday, January 7th, his employer announced the sad news, quoting Clements' brother Gavin Clements: "We are devastated to lose Stephen, so loved by his family and friends. We ask for some time and privacy to deal with this news at this difficult time. "

A request that is all too understandable. Because the presenter, who only switched to BBC last year and, according to his own statement, had started "his dream job" there, also leaves his wife Natasha and his two children Poppy and Robbie behind. Particularly heartbreaking in this context is his last tweet, which he apparently only dropped shortly before his unexpected death. With just two simple but meaningful emojis - praying hands and a heart - he creates a collage of photos, some of which show him with his children, some in his role as radio presenter, but also individual recordings of his two offspring.

His last social media greeting was to his family

Under his last post on Twitter, the comments of his followers increase, all of which have one thing in common: the shock of the early death of the 47-year-old and the mourning of an obviously very popular person. Numerous public statements make it clear that he met with a lot of sympathy from his employer and colleagues. Stephen Nolan, Stephen Clements' immediate BBC colleague, said on Twitter: "Stephen, your warmth 'on air' was a real reflection of who you really are - a kind, decent person with so much natural talent. We will miss you. "

The popular presenter was considered "friendly and talented"

TV presenter Eamonn Holmes also expresses his grief on social media: "No more conversations with Stephen ... I will miss you, your listeners will miss you. My condolences to your family. It should be a lesson to all of us, that Living life because we never know how long it will take. Sad, sad times. How can it be that you are gone now? " A question that will keep his family, friends and colleagues busy for a while.
