Eastenders actresses Lace Turner and Jesse Wallace shed tears Thursday night from the Spin Off Series Secrets of the Square.
The pair were asked to watch a heartbreaking scene from the past, which left them in tears because of the bond with the co-star.
In the scene, much-loved Charlie Slater dies of a heart attack after Kat Moon, the character of Jesse, leaves the hysterical.
Stacey Fowler actress Lacey first started to cry before JCO became emotional when she revealed this moment.
Their bond with former co-star Derek Martin brought tears to their eyes, they are still in touch.
It was Charlie’s final scene in a fight with his daughter Kat, who suffered a sudden heart attack and died before an ambulance could arrive.

Jesse first avoided the screen before looking at his troubled co-star Lacey.
As the scene ended, both actresses wiped away their tears before explaining their reaction.
