Jorgie Porter has left Hollyoaks, after playing Theresa McQueen on the Channel 4 soap for the last seven years.

Last night, Hollyoaks' fans said goodbye to Theresa as Jorgie's final scenes aired. The actress was inundated with support on Twitter and Jorgie made sure to thank everyone for their well wishes.

She tweeted: "Thankyou all so much you all mean so much to me that you all tweet me these lovely things I'm emosh !! I read them all with a smile !!"

Viewers watched as Theresa bowed out of Hollyoaks and left for Spain. However, some were left a little disappointed with her exit, as the soap had teased an "emotional twist of events."

Many thought that meant Jorgie's character was going to be killed off and even Jorgie had hinted we could have seen the end of Theresa. According to The Mirror she said before her exit aired: "I have loved playing Theresa McQueen and am so sad to leave Hollyoaks but I have hugely enjoyed my exit plot and viewers will have to watch tonight to see whether it really is the end of Theresa!"

When it came to light Theresa was fleeing Hollyoaks for Spain, many fans focused on the fact that it meant the door had been left open and Jorgie could potentially return to Hollyoaks in the future.

She originally joined the show back in 2008 and did take a brief hiatus for a few months, before returning in April 2014. Throughout her time onscreen, Jorgie has been at the centre of several huge storylines including the murder of Calvin Valentine.

She first announced her plans to leave Hollyoaks in July last year. Reports at the time suggested Jorgie's exit was due to her wanting to pursue a career in Hollywood instead.

Sounds like exciting things could be in store for the 28-year-old!

Here's how fans reacted to Jorgie leaving:
