Weakest Link presenter Fiona Coyne has died, Eyewitness News reported on Wednesday.
She was 45 years old.
It was initially reported that she had died in a car accident, but later reports said that this was not the case, and that she had died at her home in Cape Town.
Known for her cutting wit on the show, which terrified contestants, Coyne had an honours degree in clinical psychology, and worked as a consultant before being chosen to be the presenter of the South African version of the British TV show.
She was also known for her love of the natural environment. She spent several years in Kenya creating awareness for The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, an organisation for rehabilitated orphaned wildlife.
