TV presenter Magenta Devine has died at the age of 61, her family have stated.
Magenta, real name Kim Taylor, was best-known for fronting Channel 4′s Network 7 in the late 80s and appearing in BBC Two’s Rough Guides to the World.
The BBC reports that her death came after a short period of illness, for which she was receiving treatment at a London hospital.
In the wake of her death, Magenta’s family have paid tribute, calling her “a talented writer and stylish on-screen presence who was greatly admired by her many friends and colleagues for her creativity and wit.”
Fans soon began sharing their tributes to Magenta, and praising her impact, online:

Pretty much everything you saw/heard on screen changed after that show.
