EastEnders fans in tears over Bex's exit

It's a Bexit for Walford

Fans of EastEnders have been left in tears after Bex Fowler's emotional exit.

Bex's mum Sonia had been so terrified about Bex travelling the world just months after she tried to take her own life that she hid her passport in an attempt to stop Bex from leaving.

But with the help of her dad Martin Bex finally found her passport where Sonia had tried to hide it and was off on her way.

But in a surprising twist the letter Bex handed her mum was pieced back together and read - and finally Sonia understood why Bex wanted to leave.

Executive Producer Jon Sen said at the time: "It's been an absolute pleasure to work with Jasmine.

"She's brought something incredibly special to the role of Bex and we will all miss her - both as a friend and colleague. We wish her the best of luck in the future."

Jasmine added: "I've had such a fantastic time playing Bex Fowler and loved being part of EastEnders but now feels like the right time to try something new.

"I've made friends for life working on the show and shall miss them all."
