"We will all miss him greatly and have offered our sincerest condolences to his family at this very sad time."

A cause of death has yet to be revealed, but Charnock has since taken to his Twitter.com account to remember Whitaker, who portrayed his onscreen son Leo Dingle from 2011.

He writes, "Our superhero. We were lucky to know you and hear your laugh. You lit up our lives, dearest, loveliest Harry".
