Fans of the ITV daytime show attending the recording of Monday's show have been remembering the star after she lost her battle against cancer.
One said: "It's really, really sad. I'm very upset for her family. She obviously wanted to make it to Christmas and that hasn't been possible… I feel for her boys and her husband. It's very sad."
Another added: "It's very sad… the journey she must have gone through and the pain. I saw her a couple of weeks ago on This Morning and she looked absolutely stunning and she talked about her journey through her treatment and her wish to make it beyond Christmas. It's just desperately sad. She tried so hard to hold on to life. She's an inspiration."
Stars of stage and screen have also been paying their respects to the actress and TV personality via Twitter, with her former co-star Simon Pegg among the first to post a tribute online, having worked with her on the comedy series ‘Faith In The Future’ in the 1990s.
