Although it is yet not confirmed what caused her death, Tara had received treatment in 2016 for a non-malignant brain tumour, BBC news reported. 

Prior to that she had a highly publicised cocaine habit that led to the collapse of her nasal septum, which needed to be surgically repaired. 

Tara finished in second place while starring in I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here in 2002, filmed here in Australia.

Friends and fans have taken to social media to express their sorrow.

Tweets such as Tara P-T as I’ll remember her. You could rock a Bond-themed fancy dress, party girl. RIP TPT  and Tara was very bright & great fun. Sadly, as she often spoke about, drugs wrecked her life.
