In an emotional Instagram post, she said: "I'm writing this with mascara all over my face and tears/snot dripping onto my clothes but that's a wrap... on what has been the most incredible five years of my life.

The Platt family really are a second family to me.

"It's so crazy to me that five years ago, I had just finished sixth form and had no idea what direction life was going to take me in.

"I never in a million years expected that I would be calling Gail Platt a friend. But here we are... and I'm grateful for every single second of it.

"It's such a cliche, but the Platt family really are a second family to me. And I will forever be in debt to them. They have taught me everything I know... who needs a degree and drama school when you have the PLATTS???? (sic)"
