Billie played the first of the Doctor’s companions in the revived series for two years, before her character, Rose Tyler, became trapped in an alternate universe with her family.

BBC iPlayer wished the actress a happy birthday by sharing her last scene on the show – her emotional goodbye with the Doctor.

Along with the video, they said “Happy Birthday, @billiepiper! 🎂 🎈 Here’s a throwback to her emotional goodbye in Doctor Who.”

Billie lost no time in responding to the tweet, joking that the heartbreaking scene had “ruined” her birthday.

“Ruin my birthday why don’t you 😩,” she said, as she shared the tweet.

The official Doctor Who twitter account used a more cheerful moment from the show to make Billie’s birthday.

They shared a gif of the actress smiling and waving, taken from the 50th Anniversary special, The Day Of The Doctor, calling her “remarkable”.

“Happy Birthday @billiepiper. The remarkable Rose Tyler. #DoctorWho,” they tweeted.

Since her time on the classic who, Billie’s taken a step behind the camera.

She’s currently busy filming her directorial debut Rare Beast – which she also wrote.

The film sees Billie take the role of Mandy, an ambitious single mother, and has been described as an “anti rom com.”
