Earlier this month, Tamzin made her exit sound final when she tweeted: "So that's it! The end of an era... For me at least. Melanie Healy/Beale/Owen has left the building...

"It's been a pleasure, a privilege and a 21-year association with a family I will cherish forever and never forget..."

She recently hinted there was more heartbreak ahead for her character, who she has played on and off for 21 years.

Tamzin announced her intention to leave the soap back in July, telling Digital Spy: "When John [Yorke] asked me to return to EastEnders back in 2017, I jumped at the chance to play Mel once more but it was only supposed to be for a year.

"That year quickly passed and I agreed to stay on for another, but now the time feels right to once again pursue other challenges.

"I will of course miss so many people here at EastEnders, and I will forever have good memories of my time at the show, but I am also excited to experience new roles outside of Walford."
