Speaking about his shock exit from EastEnders and the nature of events surrounding his death, Jonny Labey told The Radio Times: "A lot of the really emotional stuff happens after I leave and all of my last scenes are very happy.

"It was quite strange because Lin [Blakley] and Roger [Sloman] were filming a lot of the reactive parts and then coming back to film all the upbeat stuff with me. It was quite odd! But watching Lin and Roger do their scenes was really hard."

He also stated that filming his last scenes, which were obviously pretty brutal, was pretty hard.

"I was a mess. It was nice to have this experience, but to say goodbye to everyone, especially Harry [Reid], Roger and Lin was really tough".

Jonny announced he was leaving the soap earlier this year after a year long spell on the soap, news that devastated his legion of fans.
