The children’s TV channel reported in a post on Twitter that all members of his team had been devastated by the death of “such a talented young actor”.

He died after a brief illness, the CBBC said in a statement.
“He will be very much missed by all of us and our deepest condolences to his family and friends at this time.”
The channel urges any young viewers affected by the news to share their feelings and talk to anyone.
Archie’s father, Sardar David Jason Dale Boy’s helpless younger brother Rodney Trotter, famously starred in The Owls and Horses.
John Challis, who played Aubrey in the long-running BBC comedy “Aubrey”, said Archie’s death was “sad news for everyone” and added that his parents were “heartbroken for Nick and Lucy”.
Samuel Small, a friend of Archie’s and So Aokward’s co-star who appeared in Game of Thrones and the BBC drama The Nest, shared several photos and said he had never known anyone on Instagram who had “touched so many people’s hearts” with sensitive respect.
In response to the tribute, a message from Lucy Linderst’s account said: “He will love you and see you forever.”
RV started her career at Sylvia Young Theater School according to her CV.
In addition to CBBC, he appeared in Hospital Drama Casualty and Jack Whitehall Comedy Bad Education, as well as other projects playing a young version of the comedian.
His death is not the first tragedy to hit the CBBC in recent years.
Sixteen-year-old Millie Inbetwin and Almost Never star Mia-Lesia Naylor died at the hospital in 2019.
