Clive Hornby died from cancer on 3 July 2008, aged 63. He had taken a break from the soap to battle a then unnamed illness. It was stated by The Sun that Clive Hornby died of hypoxia, a disease often associated with cancer, in a Bradford Hospice. His funeral took place on 15 July 2008 at Rawdon Crematorium in Leeds.

Jack Sugden was laid to rest onscreen in an episode screened by ITV on 10 February 2009. Jack's dialogue from earlier episodes was used as memories for several of the characters. A vision of Jack made a graveside appearance at the end of the episode, which closed with the original version of the soap's theme.
