Following Maddy Hill''s departure from EastEnders, actor James Farrar has paid an emotional tribute to her dismal co-star.

After a breakdown of the relationship between her and James'' character Zack Hudson, the actress''s character Nancy Carter slammed out of Albert Square last night.

After her departure on Instagram, James shared a picture of himself with Maddy on set, saying, "You looked after me my mate Mads. Proper trust on set every single day. Thank you G."

A picture of the cast, including the two actors doing karaoke together and writing Maddy''s name over the short clip, was also shared.

In Nancy''s final scenes, she mulled whether to give Zack another chance, but came to the conclusion that everything will never be the same again. She also had disagreements over Linda''s alcoholism, and her belief that it played a role in her recent car accident.

"It''s been a pleasure to revisit Nancy and the Square in the last year, but it''s been like the right time for us to move on for now," Maddy said of Digital Spy. "I already miss everyone and am so grateful to work with people I love so much."

"We wish Maddy all of the best for the future," said a BBC spokesperson.

Maddy returned to Nancy just over a year ago, having initially played the role on the soap between 2013 and 2016.

EastEnders is available on BBC One on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, and is available on BBC iPlayer.
