Emmerdale's series producer Gavin Blyth has died at the age of 41, ITV has confirmed.

The show chief - who took office at the Yorkshire-based soap in January 2009 - passed away last night following a short period of ill health.

An Emmerdale spokesperson said today: "It is with great sadness that we confirm our series producer Gavin Blyth passed away last night after a short illness.

"Our thoughts are with his family, friends and colleagues at this terrible time. He will be greatly missed by us all. Gavin leaves his wife Suzy and children Tom, 15, Anya, 11 and Carter, aged 1."

Emmerdale's executive producer Steve November added: "Gavin has made an immense contribution to Emmerdale since taking over as series producer in January 2009 and during many hugely successful years at ITV.

"As a friend and colleague, he will be missed an incredible amount by us all. It is a very sad day for everyone at Emmerdale. Our thoughts are with Gavin's family and those closest to him at this difficult time."

More soon.

Holy fucking shit. That's terrible. For those that don't know, he was basically the Head Writer of the show. Wow.

Perhaps Deena Payne will be un-fired?

Are you trying to give me false hope? Ass ... :shame:

But no, they'll probably carry on with the plans he has since the show is written until at least January. I do wonder if they'll be a transition person than a whole new series producer or if the replacement will stick from the get go.

I didn't like some of the decisions he made such as firing Deena Payne! This is still terrible news! RIP!
