Leach, a British presenter, passed away on August 24 at the age of 76. The cause of death was complications from a stroke.

According to his family, Leach suffered a stroke in November last year, which led to a lengthy hospital stay and an extended recovery period.

Leach, whose career began in the early sixties, was most famously known for his 11-year stint as host on "Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous."


At the age of 18, he was Daily Mail's youngest reporter. He moved to the states and also worked for New York Daily News and People.

The entertainment journalist plied at his craft and eventually moved on to television where he contributed to "AM Los Angeles" and "Entertainment Tonight."

He had been living in Las Vegas since the late nineties and would regularly write for the Las Vegas Sun and the Las Vegas Review-Journal.


Leach was only married once, and the bond ended in divorce. He is survived by three sons.

Celebrities have since taken to Twitter to express their loss. William Shatner said: "Condolences to the family of my friend [Robin Leach.] He will be missed."

Joely Fisher sent him "champagne wishes and caviar dreams," while former pop group Backstreet Boys wished him the same and added: "Sad to hear we lost a legend this morning."
