Truly shocking and saddening news, and I don't even watch Emmerdale. By all accounts he was a fantastic producer and is a tragic loss.
It's a big loss to the show. My thoughts go out to his family and friends.
OMG im shocked at this! I met him when I spent the day outside the Emmerdale studios (with some friends trying to meet the cast earlier this year) and he was lovely. He also made Emmerdale fantastic viewing again.
