BBC Three’s Small Teen Bigger World Star Jasmine Burkitt Dies Aged 28 Leaving Fiancé Devastated
Jasmine Burkitt, a reality star on BBC Three, has passed away at the age of 28. Her devastated fiance confirmed the news.
Over ten years ago, the television personality known only as Jazz made an appearance in the channel’s documentary series Small Teen Big World and its follow-up feature Small Teen Bigger World.
Jazz, who was born with dwarfism and was at 3 feet 11 inches, wanted to prove to the country that she was no different from any other youngster. She participated in the films with her mother Bev, who passed away in 2014.
“She is the most incredible human that ever walked this planet, she is the strongest, funniest, most kindest and purely decent person I’ve ever known. I am truly devastated. She changed my life forever and I’ll never be the same,” Lewis Burke (her fiance) said in a tribute to the star.
Even though Lewis confirmed her death, the underlying cause of her passing is yet to be revealed.
