Emmerdale will say goodbye to Sandy Thomas in bittersweet scenes next week.

Freddie Jones has already filmed his final scenes in the role of Sandy, who's been part of the show for the past 12 years.

Last night's episode saw Sandy bond with newcomer Maisie, after she arrived to visit him at Mulberry Cottage.

Over the coming week, Sandy will develop a bond with Maisie, ultimately leaving him with a major decision to make when she invites him to join her as she heads back to Australia.

Although fans will have to wait and see how the story unfolds, Sandy's last episode will air on Friday, February 16.

However, that won't be the absolute last we see of him, as he appears one last time next week when he connects with his daughter-in-law Laurel via video call.

The spoiler pictures show the village residents gathering around the screen as Sandy raises his final toast to his friends back home – whilst sporting an Australian hat! Does this confirm that Sandy has departed the Dales to focus on a future with Maisie?
