The Only Way Is Essex fans are grieving the passing of the show's matriarch, Nanny Pat.

The Wright family is devastated after their beloved grandmother passed away on Wednesday, aged 80, after suffering a short illness.

Grandkids Jessica and Mark have taken to Twitter to express their grief and to thank fans for their support. 

"My heart is broken but so overwhelmed by your support. To know good ole Nanny was loved by so many is the best feeling in the world. Thank You," Mark wrote.

Meanwhile, Jessica echoed his sentiments, saying: "Heartbroken does not even come close to how my family and I are feeling. Thank you so much for your support, my Nan was so loved."

The two also posted images of Nanny Pat on Instagram, including one with her husband, Charlie.
