We do love a happy ending here at Yahoo Towers, so we breathed a huge sigh of relief when EastEnders Nancy and Tam disappeared into the smog without Masood tagging along like the ultimate third wheel.
But while we’re happy the characters got the exit they deserved, we’re going to miss actors Maddy Hill and Himesh Patel. Their final scenes aired tonight (Friday) as Nancy and Tam decided to quit Walford and travel the world.
It almost wasn’t the romantic ending they wanted though, as Tam’s dad Mas (the always brilliant Nitin Ganatra) decided he would join the loved-up pair on their travels.
Luckily heroes Mick and Linda Carter stepped in and stopped Mas from leaving the Square, and Tam delivered a speech to a packed Vic, paying tribute to Nancy and his dad.
It wasn’t only the Albert Square residents who were touched by his words. Twitter went into meltdown over the departures, with many fans saying they were in tears at home.
Others just hoped they wouldn’t be gone too long.
Maddy and Himesh’s departures were announced last month. The actors decided last summer that they wanted to pursue new projects.
Maddy’s already landed her first post-EE role and will be starring in a stage version of A Midsummer Night’s Dream in London this summer.
We’ll miss you, Tancy. Sad face.
