Atlanta – Little Women: Atlanta star Ashley Ross – also known as Ms Minnie – has died suddenly at the age of 34.

Her publicist Liz Dixson confirmed the news in a statement published on Ross' Instagram account. 

The statement, issued "with profound sadness", said Ross "had succumbed to injuries from a tragic hit-and-run car accident".

The show, which airs on the Lifetime channel in the United Kingdom, follows the lives of a group of women with dwarfism.

The reality show is based in Atlanta, Georgia, in the United States.

The statement continued: "The family respectfully asks for their privacy as they grieve during this very difficult time."

No holds barred

The sixth series of Little Women: Atlanta is set to air later this year and it's believed filming has already been completed. Ross had been a part of the show since it began in 2016.

It was a spin-off of Little Women: LA and, like the original, is full of real-life drama as the women navigate their way through life's challenges – there are boyfriend issues, pregnancies, tears, tantrums, you name it.

The women have even delved into the world of hip hop – well, it is Atlanta.

But it also has a serious side, showing the difficulties of having dwarfism. (BBC)
