Dominic Brunt leads tributes to Johnny Leeze

OHMYGOSSIP — Dominic Brunt has led tributes to his former ‘Emmerdale’ co-star Johnny Leeze, who has died aged 78.
The ex-Dales star – who played Ned Glover from 1994 to 1999 – passed away after suffering a heart attack, and he tested positive for coronavirus a day before his death.
Dominic (Paddy Kirk) praised Johnny for being “full of good advice”.
He wrote on Twitter: “RIP Johnny Leeze. My flat mate when I arrived in @emmerdale in 1997. Old school and wayward but full of good advice. The funniest stories attached to this fella. Non repeatable here I’m afraid. X (sic)”
‘Emmerdale’ star Dean Andrews (Will Taylor) also admitted Johnny had given him plenty of words of wisdom over the years.
He tweeted: “Very very sad to hear my old mate and former
@emmerdale legend Johnny Leeze past away today. I first worked with him in 1983 and he gave me lots of encouragement and advice. Great entertainer and a cracking bloke #RIP (sic)”
Johnny’s daughter Holly told Daily Star Online: “He was my friend, he was such a strong, strong man.
“He was such a great guy, a really funny guy. He was loved by everybody really. Even by his ex-wife, who is with me today, my mum.
“I don’t know what else to say. I’m numb, I just can’t get my head round it at the minute.
“I want to say so much more about him but I just don’t know what to say.”
Johnny’s brother Phillip revealed his sibling had Covid-19 and “underlying health issues”.
As well as ‘Emmerdale’, the star had a stint in ‘Coronation Street’ in 1985 as milkman Harry Clayton, whose daughter Sue Clayton was played by Jane Hazlegrove.
