She had been born just shortly earlier, with her parents knowing they wouldn’t have long with her.

Chas had bravely decided to continue with the pregnancy despite knowing the baby had no kidneys and underdeveloped lungs.

And while this tragedy was harrowing enough, worse is to come.

Chas and Paddy will deal with their grief and trying to move forward with their lives in very different ways.

Dominic Brunt, who plays the heartbroken dad, revealed to “We knew the outcome of the birth but we didn’t want to know anymore as I like the surprise in the scripts.

“So I don’t actually don’t know what happens with Paddy and Chas next.

“I just know that they are set to struggle in their own ways for a while.”

Last night’s emotional episode featured an experimental flash-forward format, which saw Paddy and Chas enjoying special moments with their daughter as she grew.

This was shot from the perspective of Paddy, and him imaging what life could have been.

Is this a hint as to how the couple will process their grief?

“I just want to say a massive thank you to everyone who has watched tonight’s ep,” she wrote.

“I hope it was respectful of anyone who has been through anything close… and makes people hold their children close and be thankful for the gift we have been given… thank you x x x.”
