The 35-year-old social media star lost her life on Friday morning, when her e-scotter collided with a lorry at a roundabout in Battersea, south-west London.

In a press release, the London Metropolitan Police said a woman in her 30's was involved in a fatal crash between a truck and an electric scooter, and was pronounced dead at the scene.

British YouTube star Emily Hartridge has died at the age of 35, following a disgusting accident.

The post continued: "We all loved her to bits and she will never be forgotten".

Davina's comment comes after the news of Emily's death was announced on her Instagram page in view of her 44,000 followers.

Hartridge, 36, died Friday morning at the Queen's Circus roundabout in Battersea - a freak accident thought to be the first of its kind in the United Kingdom, the Telegraph reported.

Ms Hartridge was known for her comedic lifestyle videos on YouTube, discussing everything from health, fitness and relationships.

Hartridge's lifestyle, fitness and travel videos drew almost 350,000 subscribers.

For me, at this particular moment, there is nothing really to talk about until the two clubs reach some sort of compromise. My agent contacted me, I had a think about it and a quick look at the situation and thanked them very much.

Emily Hartridge, 36 died at the scene on the Queen's Circus roundabout in Battersea on Friday morning, in what is thought to be the first United Kingdom incident of its kind. "She was a very special person", read the message which concluded with four heart emojis.

She was dating fellow PT Jacob Hazell and one of her last Instagram posts is a snap of the pair kissing, titled: "10 REASONS TO HAVE A YOUNGER BOYFRIEND". She also appeared in the short TV series "Sketch My Life" and the series "Oh Shit I'm 30".

Hartridge rose to fame on social media as an influencer and YouTube star seven years ago, according to the outlet.

"We're deeply saddened to learn about the tragic loss of a truly talented British creator, Emily Hartridge", the tweet read.

"Emily is one of the most genuine, kind, funny, intelligent souls I've ever met", another wrote, while many grappled with the unexpected news.

"I'm really struggling to comprehend the sudden passing of my friend @emilyhartridge". She was a radiant light who always found a reason to laugh. "All my thoughts are with her family xx".

I wanted to create a safe space where women could talk about whatever they wanted and feel supported by other women who have gone through similar experiences.
