LOVED ones of Vicar of Dibley star Emma Chambers gathered at the family farm yesterday after her death from a suspected heart attack at 53.
Her devastated husband Ian Dunn, and relatives met up a day after news of the tragedy broke.
Emma’s mother Noelle, 93, lives at the property in Minstead, Hants. It is owned by the star’s sister Sarah Doukas — boss of model agency Storm.
The farm is eight miles from the home Emma shared with actor husband Ian Dunn in Lymington, where she died suddenly on Wednesday.
Emma, Vicar of Dibley’s loveable Alice Tinker, told previously how pigs and a family dog lived at the family’s New Forest farm.
But the actress could not touch animals without suffering extreme allergic reactions.
Doing so left her at risk of asthma attacks and the need for possible steroid injections.
Emma died of “natural causes”, with former BBC executive producer Jon Plowman revealing she suffered a heart attack.
He told BBC Radio 4: “It’s no age to have a heart attack, as I understand it.”
Tributes continued to pour in for the Notting Hill star yesterday.

Mr Plowman said: "Emma was a gifted comic actress who made any part she played look easy. She was adored by the cast and crew."
Her agent John Grant said Emma “created a wealth of characters and an immense body of work”.
He added: “She will be missed.”
