Last night (January 19), EastEnders said goodbye to a legend: Abi Branning.

Following the events of Christmas Day, Abi has been in hospital brain dead with an in-denial Max refusing to switch off her life support. After much agonising, he finally made the difficult decision to let her pass on, and everyone got very emotional.

The real-life Brannings, or rather the actors who portray the family in the soap, paid tribute to Lorna Fitzgerald, who has been playing Abi since 2006.

Max actor Jake Wood tweeted: "As you know @LornaFitz0 I am so proud of all the incredible work you've done over the last 12 years and more importantly of the grounded and amazing young woman you've become in that time.

"It's truly been an honour to watch you grow and flourish. Love ya x".
