Speaking on the Radio 1 Breakfast Show, Maddy said: "We finished filming five weeks ago. April 22 is our last day on screen."

And when she was asked if the door will be left open for Nancy and Tamwar, she replied: "Yeah we can tell you that - yes! You can have that much! They still exist."

That's good news, right? At least we know their characters won't be killed off.

Maddy said that she'll miss her on-screen family the most, explaining: "You spend more time with them than you do with your real family."

Meanwhile, Himesh said: "Because I've been there for eight and a half years, it's really the end of a chapter for me. A lot of the people that you work with regularly, you actually become close to.

"So I'll definitely miss Nitin [Ganatra] who plays my dad, because he's not just been a great actor to work with, he's been a great mentor."
