Emmerdale Producer Gavin Blyth mourned by Soap Stars.


Stars of Emmerdale and Coronation Street came together yesterday to mourn the loss of telly hero Gavin Blyth.

Gavin, who produced Emmerdale and used to work on the Weatherfield serial, died tragically last month aged just 41 after losing his battle with suspected Lymphoma, leaving wife Suzy and their three children. His funeral took place at a church in Southport, Lancashire.

Stars including Emmerdale's Mark Charnock, Pauline Quirke and Matthew Wolfenden turned up to pay their respects. Samia Smith, Sally Dynevor and Katherine Kelly also left the cobbles to say farewell to Gavin, who has been described by friends as a telly "genius".
The family have asked for any donations to be made to Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research via their Website which you can view by clicking HERE.
Many of the stars of both Emmerdale and Corrie have been involved in raising money for LLR for several years now, and am sure that Gavin would be proud to see this amazing and undoubtably effective support continue for many years to come :-)
