It continued: 'It's with sadness we share the news that friend of Hollyoaks, Terence Harvey, has died.

'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,' it was concluded. 

The actor had last appeared on the Channel 4 soap seven years ago, having been involved in some very dramatic storylines during his run on the show.

Most noticeably, Terrence, who took on the role of a wealthy pensioner, romanced devious Cindy Cunningham played by Stephanie Waring.

The two married and were meant to have a happily ever after, however Cindy returned to the show to explain that her husband had died in mysterious circumstances during a skiing getaway.

Following news of his passing, Stephanie had taken to Twitter to pay her respects to the star, tweeting: 'Such a sad loss R.I.P Terence.'

She wasn't the only one to send her condolences, as Titanic star Paul Brightwell and Good Will Hunting actress Minnie Driver were seen reminiscing about a time they had worked with Terence on the social media site.

Responding to a tweet director Steve Hughes had posted, Paul said: '@driverminnie do you remember when we kidnapped TH for Pete Howitt? Sad news.'

Minnie replied: 'I do remember . Ah, he was a lovely man.'

Steve's initial tweet had read: '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.'

His tweet also struck a chord with Emmerdale star John Mone, who plays Lawrence White on the ITV soap, responded: 'RIP. Terence Harvey.'

Holby City star Roger Barclay added: 'I had the pleasure to work with him twice. Lovely actor, one from the old school.'

Terence has lent his acting talents to a plethora of other endeavours, as well as Hollyoaks, starring alongside Rowan Atkinson in Johnny English back in 2003.

He has also seen Hollywood success with parts in, From Hell, Basic Instinct 2, Hustle, Waking the Dead and Downton Abbey.
