EastEnders has unveiled a behind the scenes look at Milly Zero and her character Dotty Cotton’s exit from the show.
In a video posted to the show’s Twitter account, we get to see the actress film her final scenes as well as say goodbye to the cast and crew she’s spent so much time with.
“So I’ve just had my last scene and what better place to have it than in the iconic cafe and now we’re standing here in the Vic, which is a place I’ve watched on my TV since I was a very little girl,” she says in the video.

Addressing the cast and crew, she says: “I’ll miss everyone so much. Honestly, I’ve made friends for life, I’ve learnt so much. It’s been the best, so thank you.
“It’s been the biggest honour to be here and leave the tiniest part on such a rich legacy and a tapestry of British culture. It has meant so much to me and my family, and my friends.”
We then see her hug her fellow castmates before sending fans a message. “Thank you so much to everyone who has supported Dotty. I know she’s not easy to love sometimes, but we love to hate her. And it’s just been such an amazing journey and I couldn’t have done it without all you guys, so just thank you.”

Zero also posted some pictures from her last day on set on Instagram, captioning them with a sweet message thanking the cast, crew and the fans.
She also took the time to give a shoutout to the people who work in Continuing Soap day in and day out.
“I want to say how much I will now always continue to appreciate anyone who works in Continuing Drama & Soap. Its really not easy and I don’t think anyone realises how much every single person puts in- to tell such truly moving, inspiring, funny, touching stories every single night. I will always be in awe of you,” she wrote.
