Charlotte Dawson, a judge on Australia's Next Top Model, has been found dead at her home in Sydney.
The 47-year-old's body was discovered in her apartment in the Kings Cross area of the city - local police have confirmed.
A spokesperson told News.com.au: "About 11am police from the Kings Cross local area command were called to Cowper Wharf Road after the body of a woman had been located in a unit.
"No suspicious circumstances at this stage and a report is being prepared for the coroner."
Dawson was apparently set to have lunch with a friend, who raised the alarm when she failed to show up.
Born in New Zealand, left home at the age of 16 to model in New York and Europe - and returned to Australia 10 years later to begin a media career.
She was the target of Twitter trolling in 2012, which led to her attempting suicide. She has also suffered with depression in the past.
