Chambers passed away aged 53 on Wednesday but her death from natural causes was only announced yesterday.

He told Radio 4 this morning, saying: 'It's no age to have a heart attack, as I understand it'.

Jon Plowman, executive producer of "The Vicar of Dibley", described Chambers as "bright and clever", according to BBC.

"She was great fun to work with and adored by all the cast and crew of Vicar Of Dibley".

Among the many Twitter tributes to Emma was Dawn French's picture of her Vicar character receiving a suffocating hug on a sofa from Emma's character. "She will be missed and our deepest condolences go out to her family and friends".

"Emma Chambers was a hilarious and very warm person and of course a brilliant actress".

But it was her starring role alongside Dawn French in the hit BBC sitcom The Vicar Of Dibley which earned her national recognition.

Social media users slammed it as "repugnant" and "absolutely cringeworthy". I just wasn't particularly fazed by any of it".

Sharing a photo of them on-set, Dawn wrote that Emma was "unique" and a "beautiful spark".

Emma Chambers is survived by her husband Ian Dunn, also an actor who has starred in "Girls in Love", "EastEnders" and "Coronation Street". "She brought laughter and joy to many, and will be greatly missed", he said on Tuesday.

James Dreyfus, who starred alongside Chambers in Notting Hill also paid tribute on Twitter.

She was perhaps best known for her role in "Notting Hill" as Hugh Grant's quirky on-screen sibling, Honey, who quickly bonds with his love interest Julia Roberts.

The actress wasn't diagnosed with chronic allergies until she was eight.

'Emma was a gifted comic actress who made any part she played look easy.

Born in Doncaster, Chambers trained at the Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art in the 1980s, working in theatre for 10 years before her major TV break as Charity Pecksniff in a TV adaptation of Charles Dickens's Martin Chuzzlewit.
