"There is a big @judemonkmcgowan-sized hole in all of our Hollyoaks lives now," she wrote alongside a photo of the pair of them. "You're so talented and professional and generous and a joy for any actor to work with.

"You're also pretty cool as a human too. I cannot wait to see what you go on to do next, it's all so very exciting.

"Please all enjoy this throwback to the very first day we ever worked together when Courtney and Liam were reunited in sunny España," Conachan concluded.

On the show, it was revealed that Courtney and Liam had a child together following a one-night stand.

Courtney went on to marry Liam's brother Jesse (Luke Jerdy), but he died from alcohol poisoning shortly after they tied the knot.

Liam, on the other hand, fell to his death as part of Hollyoaks' Devil's Dinner Party storyline.
