    John’s daughter Louella died at a music festival in Lulworth, Dorset in September of this year.

    Her family said that the 25-year-old had ‘taken an ‘illegal substance’ before she died and in a statement released by the actor’s agent said: ‘Our hearts are broken by this horrific tragedy.

    ‘Louella inspired all who knew her with her joy of life. The family would like to thank everyone for their heartfelt tributes and messages.’
