EastEnders star Maisie Smith teases soap returns as she admits to 'sobbing' her way through final scenes

EASTENDERS star Maisie Smith has teased that "she'll definitely come back" to the soap in the future.

It was revealed in October that actress Maisie, 20, would be leaving the BBC show after 13 years on our TV screens as iconic character Tiffany Butcher.

Viewers were in tears as Tiffany walked away from Albert Square in emotional scenes for the final time.

However, Maisie has confirmed that she's left the door open for her character to return.

Appearing on The One Show on Tuesday, presenter Lauren Laverne quizzed her on whether her character could return in the future.

The actress replied: "Always! You never really leave EastEnders, and that’s a fact."

She added: "They’ll always find a way to bring you back and I’ll definitely come back."

The redhead opened up about her final scenes and said that she was left a blubbering mess along with her co-stars.

She said: "I’m quite a cry baby anyway, especially with Shona [McGarty] – she really brings it out of me and all of our last scenes, we just sobbed.

"Even the happy scenes, we just cried, because it was weird because obviously I’ve said goodbye before and I remember it so clearly and it just feels like the time has flown!"

She continued: "I’m sad to be saying goodbye again because it’s such a wonderful family that you build.

"You see the same people every day and you work with them and you just build such a lovely friendship with everyone, so it was sad to leave everyone."

‘Even the happy scenes, we just cried, because it was weird because obviously I’ve said goodbye before and I remember it so clearly and it just feels like the time has flown!’

Her latest storyline has seen her split from husband Keegan and begin a new relationship with far right thug Aaron while preparing for divorce.

Her final scenes saw her standing outside Walford's tube station in floods of tears as she waited for her husband to come and chase after her, but to no avail.

She had written an emotional love letter to her childhood sweetheart begging him to run to her should he truly want her to stay behind with him.

Little did she know that brother Liam had thrown away the letter, and instead placed the signed divorce papers and Keegan's necklace inside the envelope.

As Keegan sobbed back on the Square, Tiffany was seen descending into the train station as a Christmas choir sang carols in the background.

Fans were overcome with emotion at the final scenes – and took to social media to admit they had been left "sobbing" at Maisie's departure.

"Not me catching up on EastEnders over a takeaway sobbing at Tiff leaving," one fan wrote, as a second agreed: "I'm actually sobbing at EastEnders."

"I'm sobbing and shaking and crying," a third chimed in, as a fourth concurred: "Just had a proper cry as Tiffany departed."

"I haven't watched EastEnders in over ten years, so I decided to watch it today and now I can't stop crying," a fifth person concluded.
