By PETE BELL
CHILDREN'S TV presenter Mark Speight has been arrested over the death of his girlfriend Natasha Collins who was found in her bath yesterday lunchtime.
He was released on bail in the early hours of this morning.
A Scotland Yard spokesman said: "Police were called at 13.20 on January 3 to reports of a sudden death of a woman at a residential address in London NW8 (St John's Wood).
"The woman, aged in her 30s, was pronounced dead at the scene.
"A post-mortem will be held in due course, details to be confirmed.
"A man in his 40s was arrested at the scene. He has been bailed to return to a central London police station on a date in February."
Speight is best known for the BBC children's show SMart, which has run for more than 10 years.
He shot to fame as the rubber-faced presenter of Children's ITV Saturday morning show, Scratchy & Co.
Miss Collins starred alongside him on BBC children's show See It Saw It.
