Emberg, who was born in Brighton , found fame in the 1980s, appearing in a host of iconic television shows ranging from Doctor Who to the Lily Savage Show.

“It is with a heavy heart that I heard the news about Bella,” he said. “She was my leading lady throughout most of my career.

“She was not only a great sport but a huge comedy talent. A genuinely funny woman, but most of all a woman of immense warmth and generosity. I count myself very lucky to have worked alongside her.

“She really was a one off. RIP Bella.”

Emberg had just finished filming a new Sky One comedy, In the Long Run, created by Idris Elba and due to be released later this year. He paid tribute saying she was ‘brilliant and funny’.
