James Farrar pays tribute to Maddy Hill following EastEnders exit

James Farrar has sent a message to his EastEnders co-star Maddy Hill, following her exit from the soap last night.

Maddy’s character, Nancy Carter, chose to leave Albert Square following weeks of family stress.

One person who’s made Nancy’s life hell recently is her mum, Linda (Kellie Bright).

Right now, the Carters remain unaware of what really happened during Linda’s recent car crash but disowned her after learning she drank alcohol while in the car with baby Annie.

With the relationship between mother and daughter fractured, the trust between Nancy and boyfriend Zack (James Farrar) also broke this week, after the discovery he slept with Sam Mitchell (Kim Medcalf).

Nancy chose to say goodbye to her life in Walford to start afresh, hopping in a taxi last night and instructing Janine (Charlie Brooks) and Frankie (Rose Ayling-Ellis) to look after her dad Mick (Danny Dyer).

Following her exit, James posted a picture of himself and Maddy on his Instagram stories, writing: ‘You looked after me my mate Mads.’

‘Proper trust on set every single day. Thank you G.’

Arriving in March last year, James worked a lot with Maddy, with one of his biggest storylines so far being the relationship between Zack and Nancy.

Speaking to Metro.co.uk, Maddy said: ‘It’s been great revisiting Nancy and the Square over the past year but it felt like the right time to move on for now.

‘I already miss everyone and feel so grateful to work with people I have so much love for.’

Maddy’s exit comes after confirmation five more cast members will soon leave the soap.

Ricky Champ (Stuart Highway), Danielle Harold (Lola Pearce), Dayle Hudson (Peter Beale), Barbara Smith (Dana Smith) and Kelsey Calladine-Smith (Jada Lennox) will all film their final scenes as part of a huge shake-up for the soap.
