Police discovered the body of the US bartender, who starred on the Cooking Channel’s Drink Up programme, at his Brooklyn apartment on Wednesday.

The alarm was raised by one of Robinson’s friends who called police after they could not reach him.

The cause of death is currently unknown but police said there were no signs of trauma or forced entry

As the star of Drink Up, Robinson taught viewers how to make simple cocktails at home.

After the show failed to be renewed in 2010, Robinson made guest appearance on various television programmes, including Access Hollywood and VH1’s Morning Buzz.

A Cooking Channel spokesperson tweeted on Wednesday morning: “At learning of this morning’s sad news, our thoughts go out to Darryl Robinson’s family and friends.”

An autopsy report is yet to be released.
