He was a big advocate for Mental Health charities so I assume it was something he struggled with personally.

So very sad.

Life is tough for gay men when they get old. We used to die from aids now we die from a lonely heart.

[A gentleman to the end:
How 'depressed' Strictly star Robin Windsor
'struggled to get out of bed' amid injury,
relationship and money woes but bravely
spent his final weeks bringing joy to others
as fans share their touching
moments with the star]

It's a sad outcome tbh.

It's why I don't like it when a lot of Celebs are cashing in on the Mental Health "trend" because genuine cases like what happened with Robin get overshadowed.

[Former Strictly Come Dancing
professional Robin Windsor
was found dead in a London hotel,
it emerged last night
,
as his friends detailed his brave battle
against mental health struggles
and thoughts of suicide.

The professional Latin and Ballroom dancer, 44,
suffered a troubling incident over the
New Year period, before embarking to perform
on a luxurious cruise in South Africa.]


[While the cause of Robin's death
has yet to be confirmed,
his close friend and former Strictly
co-star Kristina Rihanoff hinted that he
may have taken his own life.

She wrote online: 'There are no words to express
the pain.

'Robin wasn't just my dance partner, he was a friend
and together we shared endless experiences
from our career highlights to hitting rock bottom
of rejection. Many of you, who went to see
his farewell tour, know perfectly well
that he spoke very openly about his
mental health struggles and thoughts of suicide.]

The Family has thanked all
for the messages.


But by now they can tell us how he died
keeping it secret is sad.

Reading between the lines, suicide based on his bad back and he couldn't dance. But who know.
