‘Is there anything better than seeing your friends SO happy?! I can’t wait for the most wild, crazy, unique, hilarious and special wedding we’ve got in store for us here (trust me, the initial plans made a woman on the table next to us interrupt to ask if she could be invited).

‘Wishing a lifetime of happiness, trips to Wales, visits to Flamingoland and boozy nights (all with Bob & Rita in tow) to the MR & MRS ELLIS / SHAW to be!! Love you sooooo much! (sic)’

Speaking about her final scenes: ‘A lot of it was genuine tears. It was heartbreaking.

‘My mum and dad came in to watch filming and I didn’t know it was that day, it was just because I had a full day filming and they spent the entire day watching me die.’

She added: ‘I don’t really like change. I like routine and being in a place and I’m going to miss that.’
