He said: “He was an outstanding talent and it was a pleasure to work with him. Our thoughts are with his friends and family.”

A Suffolk Police spokeswoman said they were investigating the sudden death of a man in Lowestoft but were not treating it as suspicious. She also confirmed that a a post mortem examination is due to take place to establish the cause of death.

Initial reports have indicated that Chris may have taken his own life.
