EastEnders’ emotional scenes between fan favourite Jean Slater (Gillian Wright) and her estranged son Sean (Robert Kazinsky) left viewers beside themselves.
Emotions ran high as Sean admitted that he was once again set to leave the square following his brief return to the soap after more than a decade away.
The decision was heartbreaking for his on-screen mum Jean, who is battling terminal cervical cancer.
In emotional scenes, Sean explained that he needed to leave to get help, while a tearful Jean asked: “Is this forever?”
To Jean’s disappointment Sean left the square in his car, before adding that he was “glad he came back”.
Fans took to Twitter to share their devastation over Sean’s departure.
One tweeted: “Sean and Jean got me so emotional.”
Sean had only returned to EastEnders for a few weeks and had been a hit with fans who eagerly anticipated his return after a sneak-peek trailer revealed his comeback.
EastEnders continues tomorrow at 7:30pm on BBC One.
