Heartbreaking news just in, ITV Granada presenter Tony Morris has tragically passed away aged just 57.

Tony died at Bury Hospice on Saturday surrounded by his family.

He is survived by his daughters Natalie and Rebecca.

His daughter confirmed the news of his passing on Twitter.

She wrote:

We lost our incredible dad on Saturday morning. He was more than a parent, he was also our best friend. We are utterly heartbroken, but so grateful for the time we had with him We will be offline with family for a while, but so appreciative of the lovely messages Nat & Becky x

Tony was a veteran of ITV and had presented Granada Reports for 17 years and continued to do so up until just a few weeks ago.

His death comes after being diagnosed with kidney cancer last year.

Tony’s long-term co-presenter, Lucy Meacock, led tributes to him, writing:

He was without doubt one of the most humble, kind and funny people I have ever met, and he would often make me laugh till my sides ached.

I am so very, very sad and my heart goes out to his daughters Nat and Becky.  A smile from Tony Morris always brightened everyone’s day and certainly brightened up the whole of the North West for 17 years.

He would always be respectful but would always coax the best interviews out of people and never shy away from a direct question.

Our thoughts go out to Tony’s family and friends at this hard time.

Rest in peace.
