Not a single eye was left dry in the Christmas episode of EastEnders which saw Danny Dyer leave the show after almost a decade as his character Mick Carter was lost at sea.
Actress Charlie Brooks shared a BTS photo of her and on-screen husband Danny from set as she expressed her love to her co-star.
Charlie wore a red lip and a pale light green and red jacket as Danny stood behind her in a dark coat.
The pair beamed for the camera as they posed together.
Charlie captioned the post: @officialdannydyer last ep tonight. Not a dry eye in the house.
"Well done DD. LOVE YA!"
Fans were quick to praise the pair for their acting in the latest, dramatic episode, but are also hoping that Mick will come back in the future.
One person said: "Next week he washes up in Australia and ends up on Ramsey Street."
A second viewer said: "Hopefully they’ll pull a Harold Bishop and bring him back in 5 years with amnesia."
A third person praised Charlie and said: "You are a fantastic actress, honestly one of the best on the show. Incredible talent and I hope you stay there but think the police will come knocking."
In the episode, Mick was seen jumping into the water as he tried to save his ex-wife Linda after she and Janine drove off a cliff and into the English Channel.
As he was in the water, Linda screamed at him to save Janine who was pregnant, which he did before returning into the waters for Linda.
But Linda soon appeared on a nearby shore, screaming after Mick, who was no where to be seen.
Speaking at a press event, Danny said that for the water element to have a bigger significance for the audience "it’s probably important to know the history of the show for that to work – Ian Beale did teach me to swim".
Shortly after Mick's arrival in Walford almost a decade ago, viewers learned that he could not swim due to a phobia of being in bodies of water after he almost drowned as a child.
It comes after Danny received an x-rated present from his cast mates upon his exit from the programme.
Danny revealed that the cast also bought him a rude sign, which spelled out the words: “Shoot the c**t."
Opening up about the gift, Danny told The Sun: “Basically, I would say, ‘Shall we shoot the c***?’ — meaning the scene. I know it is unpalatable but it is something I would say.
“Anyway, I’ve had some issues with my wife about hanging this neon sign in the house The missus ain’t having it. It is in the office at the mo.”
