TRIBUTES have been paid to TV presenter and YouTube star killed in a road crash.
Emily Hartridge is understood to have died on Friday morning after she was involved in a collision near her home in South London.
The 35-year-old had fronted Channel 4 programme ‘S***, I’m 30’ and a host of online shows.
Emily had also built up a huge social media following with more than 340,000 subscribers on her YouTube channel.
Just four months ago, she spoke to The Sun about her decision to freeze her eggs and hopes to become a mum.
A statement on her Instagram page said: “Hi everyone. This is a horrible thing to have to say over Instagram but we know many of you were expecting to see Emily today and this is the only way to contact you all at once.
“Emily was involved in an accident yesterday and passed away. We all loved her to bits and she will never be forgotten.
“She has touched so many lives it’s hard to imagine things without her. She was a very special person xxx.”
Emily built up a huge following with her health and lifestyle advice and campaigning on mental health.
In her final YouTube post just four days before her death she uploaded a video about her relationship with boyfriend Jake Hazell, 27.
Fans and fellow celebrities paid tribute to Emily, originally from Waterlooville, Hants, on social media after news of her death broke.
TV legend Davina McCall said: “My heart goes out to Emily’s family and friends. Such a shock. Sending you love and prayers.”
Made in Chelsea star Ashley James said: “Sending you all so much love. So devastated.”
Reality TV regular Calum Best wrote: Jesus Christ no way this is so sad I’m so sorry.”
Emily was pronounced dead at the scene following the collision just after 8.30am on Friday.
In 2016, Emily filmed a programme for All 4 in which she hosted her own funeral after having a ‘quarter life crisis’.
She said at the time: “‘I do feel like I live life in a lot of fear, I wish I could handle stress a lot better. I really want to be one of those positive people, but I’m just really pessimistic.”
There have been no arrests in connection with the investigation.
