According to The Sun newspaper, a police spokesperson said: "Police were called by London Ambulance Service at approximately 13:40hrs on Wednesday, 8 February to an address in Bramham Gardens, SW5.
"A woman, aged in her 40s, was pronounced dead at the scene. Next of kin have been informed.

Outside of her television career, Tara was a talented pianist as demonstrated at events at the Queen Elizabeth Hall with the National Symphony Orchestra.
From November 2013, she was also patron of Scottish charity Speur Ghlan for a year. Speer Ghlan delivers early intervention for young children diagnosed with autism or developmental delays.
Tara had a close relationship with the royal family, and attended the wedding of Prince William and Duchess Catherine of Cambridge in 2011.
