Former Grays Ath fitness consultant falls to her death

A FITNESS GURU on ITV’s The Biggest Loser who was once a conditioning coach for Grays Athletic  has fallen to death after splitting from her lesbian girlfriend.

Angie Dowds, 42, is believed to have jumped from a clifftop near Eastbourne in East Sussex reports the Daily Mail.

Police this morning confirmed the body of a 42-year-old, understood to be Miss Dowds, was found at Beachy Head.

A Sussex Police spokesman said: ‘Just after 4.30pm on Sunday members of the public reported that a woman was seen to jump or fall from the top of cliffs at Beachy Head.

‘Coastguards found the body of woman at the foot of the cliffs about an hour later.

‘There are no suspicious circumstances and it is believed that the body may be that of a 42-year old woman from London.’

The body is expected to be formally identified later today.

Ms Dowds was brought in by the then Grays Ath manager Justin Edinburgh in 2007 to help with conditioning for the players.

Although she was only there a few months, Angie struck up a friendship with midfielder Ernie Cooksey.

When Ernie was diagnosed with terminal cancer, Angie was on hand to help the popular Ernie with his diet as well as emotional support.




  1. This is terrible news, for someone so young and who seemed to have everything going for her in regards to her career, to take her own life in such a way must be devastating for those who knew her.

    RIP Angie
