Emmerdale star drops into charity shop

 A TV star caused a bit of a stir when he dropped in to help promote a new charity shop for children from Chernobyl.

Lyndon Ogbourne, 27, who played bad-boy Nathan Wylde in Emmerdale, drew in the crowds yesterday as he visited the Chernobyl Children’s Lifeline Old Town, in Wood Street.

He was also named patron of the Old Town, founded by Lynette Corengia a year ago to help children in Ukraine and Belarus who still suffer the effects of the 1986 nuclear disaster.

Lyndon, who was born in Swindon, said he was pleased to be back promoting the cause. He said: “It means a lot to be named patron to be honest. I’ve worked a lot with children and have seen the effect this charity has on them.

“It’s slightly different from other charities because you see where the money goes and the immediate effect on those children. It’s literally like a disaster waiting to happen again continuously. Hopefully I can help them.”

The former Commonweal School pupil said he was now working on some film projects in London but he was happy to be back in Swindon.

“It’s very strange but it’s heart-warming. I don’t get to come back enough and to have this response is amazing. I’m proud to be from Swindon,” he said. Mrs Corengia, who has cared for a girl from Chernobyl, said the shop, which opened a month ago, had been well supported.

She said: “We were lucky to be given the place rent-free and managed to set it up in a week but we will have to close it soon.

“We will look at other places to go so if anyone can help us that would be great. It’s so important for the children. Many don’t live past 30.

“We asked Lyndon because he is so gorgeous and I live next door to his uncle. He has been fantastic.”

Dennis Vystavkia, chief executive of the UK charity Chernobyl Children’s Lifeline, said he was surprised by the support of the community.

“We just popped in and got taken by surprise. The main idea is to bring awareness of the 25 years following the disaster,” he said.

“The radiation will be there for hundreds or thousands of years and there are still children living in the contaminated areas of Belarus and Ukraine.

“Child cancer victims in Belarus are on the increase every year.

“The children benefit greatly when they come here and they off-load the radiation that hammers their bodies during those four weeks so it gives them a real boost.

“It is just amazing – the support of the whole community has exceeded all expectations.”

Tributes pour in for 'Emmerdale's Blyth

Tributes have today flooded in for Emmerdale's series producer Gavin Blyth, who passed away last night at the age of 41.

Members of Emmerdale's cast and crew, fans of the soap and colleagues from Blyth's time at Coronation Street are among those who have spoken of their admiration for him over the past few hours.

Writing on Twitter earlier today, Danny Miller - who plays Aaron Livesy on the show - commented: "A friend, a incredibly intelligent man, great father and husband! And a true gent!! God bless you mate and may you rest in peace! … Wouldn't be the person I am today without the legend that is Gavin Blyth! Amazing man! Love him!"

Lyndon Ogbourne - who recently bowed out as Nathan Wylde - said: "Gavin Blyth was a friend, a total gent and a true legend. For everything that he did for me, and everyone. RIP."

Suzanne Shaw - Eve Jenson in the soap - told her online followers: "Someone makes the world special by just being in it. Gavin RIP x"

Jake Roche - known for his guest role as Isaac Nuttall - said: "Just found out about the news of Gavin Blyth. Shocking. I owe him a lot. He had the final say on casting. RIP. a true gent and genius x"

Kirsty-Leigh Porter, who plays bad girl Roz Fielding, and Emmerdale's assistant producer Tony Hammond both spoke of how they felt "honoured" to have worked for Blyth, while programme director Lee Salisbury said that the show chief "will be missed so much".

Coronation Street actor Antony Cotton (Sean Tully) also expressed his sadness on Twitter, while Weatherfield scriptwriter Jonathan Harvey described Blyth as a "lovely man" and "a real laugh".

On the DS forum, meanwhile, Emmerdale fans praised Blyth's revamp of the village serial, which began when he took office in January 2009 and resulted in a significant boost in ratings.


'Emmerdale' producer Blyth dies, aged 41

Emmerdale's series producer Gavin Blyth has died at the age of 41, ITV has confirmed.

The show chief - who took office at the Yorkshire-based soap in January 2009 - passed away last night following a short period of ill health.

An Emmerdale spokesperson said today: "It is with great sadness that we confirm our series producer Gavin Blyth passed away last night after a short illness.

"Our thoughts are with his family, friends and colleagues at this terrible time. He will be greatly missed by us all. Gavin leaves his wife Suzy and children Tom, 15, Anya, 11 and Carter, aged 1."

Blyth first joined the world of soap in 2002, when he landed the job of senior publicist at Emmerdale. He later secured the position of script editor at the programme.

In 2005, Blyth became a story associate at Coronation Street before moving onto the role of assistant producer.

After returning to Emmerdale in the position of series producer last year, he began steering a major revamp of the rural soap. His decisions included introducing the Sharma and Barton families, bringing back the characters of Cain and Charity and signing up a number of new cast members, including Kim Thomson, James Sutton, Suzanne Shaw and Pauline Quirke.

Sally Spode's evil revenge on village vicar Ashley Thomas, the tale of Mark Wylde's murder and Aaron Livesy's sexuality struggle were among the successful storylines which appeared on screens during his time with the soap.

Paying tribute to Blyth, Emmerdale's executive producer Steve November said: "Gavin has made an immense contribution to Emmerdale since taking over as series producer in January 2009 and during many hugely successful years at ITV.

"As a friend and colleague, he will be missed an incredible amount by us all. It is a very sad day for everyone at Emmerdale. Our thoughts are with Gavin's family and those closest to him at this difficult time."
