Mark, 59, had been arguing with his model fiancé Gemma Ramsay, 35, via text, according to reports, before his death. They'd been having "intense" fights during the month before his suicide. The two had been having an affair before getting engaged, while the model was married to Scottish businessman Mike Ramsay.

The DJ had attempted suicide last Christmas, according to Gloucestershire coroner Katy Skerret, by overdosing. And eventually, in April this year, after texting Gemma "goodbye" and sending a picture of pills, Mark took his own life.
