Hollyoaks bosses have paid tribute to former cast member Terence Harvey following news of his death.

The British actor played wealthy pensioner Alistair Longford on the Channel 4 soap from 2004-2010 and also had roles in EastEnders and Downton Abbey.

“It's with sadness we share the news that friend of Hollyoaks, Terence Harvey, has died,” read a statement by producer Brian Kirkwood.

“Along with many other roles on TV over the years, Terence played Alistair Longford on Hollyoaks, the father of Texas and India, and Cindy's millionaire second husband.

"Hollyoaks sends our love and condolences to Terence's family.”

Director Steve Hughes wrote: “Sad to hear about the death of character actor Terence Harvey. He starred in the last ep of Doctors I did in 2009. Great actor. Lovely man.”

Harvey was best known for his involvement in a dramatic 2010 storyline that saw him marry the cunning Cindy Cunningham and disappear while on their honeymoon.

He also had roles on the big screen in From Hell, Johnny English, I Give it a Year and Basic Instinct 2.

Harvey most recently appeared on screen in Gurinder Chadha’s acclaimed partition drama, Viceroy’s House, which hit cinemas earlier this year.
