“It’s devastating to have lost Michael, my wonderful, funny, kind and brilliant husband. We had an incredibly lucky life together,” Mosley’s wife said in a statement confirming his death later on Sunday, according to Deadline. “We’re taking comfort in the fact that he so very nearly made it. He did an incredible climb, took the wrong route and collapsed where he couldn’t be easily seen by the extensive search team.”

He has appeared on BBC One’s The One Show and ITV’s This Morning, and hosted other health-centered docuseries including BBC Two’s E-Cigarettes: Miracle or Menace? and BBC Four’s Inside Porton Down: Britain’s Secret Weapons Research Facility.

His other on-screen credits include Infested! Living with Parasites, Should I Eat Meat?, Countdown to Life: the Extraordinary Making of You, Are Health Tests Really a Good Idea? and The Secrets of Your Food, among others.
