Nanny Pat, who stared in The Only Way is Essex since it’s launch in 2010 has died aged 80 after a short illness.
Nanny Pat’s grandchildren Mark and Jess Wright, who are also TOWIE stars, led the tributes with 28-year-old Mark tweeting:
‘My heart is broken but so overwhelmed by your support. To know good ole Nanny was loved by so many is the best feeling in the world Thankyou.’ [sic].
Jess added: ‘Heart broken does not even come close to how my family & I are feeling. Thank you so much for your support my Nan was so loved an angel.’ [sic].
Stars of the show were taking part in an interview to promote the upcoming Christmas special of TOWIE as the news of Nanny Pat’s death broke.
Lydia Bright paid tribute to her co-star on Instagram, sharing a photo of herself at Pat’s 80th birthday party last month alongside the caption: ‘RIP Nanny Pat You will always be remembered as the ultimate reality queen Always at the heart of TOWIE, your memory will always shine bright.’
