I was going 'she can't be dead'!
It was the explosive Emmerdale storyline that left the nation shocked and heartbroken.
Moira Barton discovered her daughter Holly, played by Sophie Powles, dead in her bed following a heroin overdose and fans of the soap were left in tears. We saw Moira turn to estranged husband Cain Dingle for support not realising he is back with old flame Charity Tate.
Jeff Hordley, who plays Holly’s step-dad Cain Dingle, was on the show to reveal all about the emotional episode.
‘It was tough,’ Jeff said. ‘We knew [the storyline] a few months before. When one of your team goes, the Barton family, we were all gutted. Sophie was never going to stay for too long because she’s young and wanted to go on and do other things. We just wanted to keep it under wraps. It’s good that we could.’
As for Cain, he’s back with Charity [Emma Atkins] but will he reunite with his estranged wife Moira, played by Natalie J. Robb?
Jeff revealed, ‘Natalie has been amazing. She’s been a wailing banshee for weeks. There’s all the dilemma of Cain and Charity - will they stay together? I can’t say! The story team have done such a great job because they’ve taken the three of us and done this love triangle. There’s a real camp for Cain and Moira and a real camp for Cain and Charity because there’s a lot of history.’
But we’ve got lots more of Cain to look forward to as Jeff, who took a few years out of Emmerdale, is not planning to leave The Dales any time soon.
‘I left to go and pursue more theatre and do other jobs’, he says. ‘But now I’m so settled with my children and my wife [Zoe Henry who plays Rhona Goskirk) is there are well, it would be silly to up sticks and leave. I’ve got such a fantastic part that the writers keep writing superb stuff for.’
And as Coleen says, ‘We all need a bit of Cain!’
Craig Revel Horwood is looking for love! And he had some surprise confessions on the show.
'I'm single and loving it,' the Strictly Come Dancing judge admitted after splitting with his boyfriend earlier this year.
On losing his virginity, Aussie Craig, 51, revealed, 'It was a quick one. In front of the telly. Unexpected. With a young lady!'
So would Craig go out with women again now he's back on the market?
'Well, I'm not going to put myself out of any department,' Craig said before turning to Janet and adding, 'We'd make a fantastic couple. Imagine our home life!'
But Craig does have some stipulations when it comes to who he wants to date.
'Someone who is genuine and honest, who doesn't sell stories on you, kiss and tells,' he said. 'There's nothing you can do about it, there's a side to everyone's broken relationship.'

In a discussion about forgiving parents, Martine McCutcheon bravely opened up about being estranged from her abusive father since she was a child.
'It's quite well known know because he went to the papers and talked about what he'd done to me and my mum. It was domestic abuse against my mum and sometimes me,' she said. 'We had an injunction against him when I was nine years old. And he lost the right for me to be loyal to him when he did that .'
Talking about life without her father, Martine candidly revealed, 'It wasn't so much that I wished he was in my life, if anything I felt sad for him. I thought, "You're missing out on me flourishing, me becoming a mother and meeting someone who it part of you". I do look like my dad. '
Gloria asked about cutting a parent out of your life completely and Martine gave a very honest answer, saying, 'I think it's a self preservation thing. Even now I get flashbacks of things that happened that I haven't thought about in decades. I think it's happening now I've had [my son] Rafferty as well. It's a protection thing, remembering as much as I can.
'Sometimes people do build bridges with family. It's not always rosey in families but just because you build bridges but it doesn't mean it's ever the same again.'
Grant Mitchell and wife Tiffany were reunited on TV for the first time in 18 years after Ross Kemp joined Martine McCutcheon on the show.
The pair were thrilled to see each other again and said hello with a massive hug.
'It was the best times ever,' Martine said of her time on EastEnders with Ross. 'There was a code between us, and we had each other’s back, I was so young - I was 18 - Ross watched me grow up. I saw so much while I was there, it was such an intense time.'
And Ross agreed that they were very close while playing husband and wife.
'You spend more time there with you fake family than you do with your real family and that’s why some of the acting is so natural and so immediate because really, you have an alternative family,' he said.
But it wasn't all plain sailing - Grant wasn't a popular character sometimes!
'Truly I remember presenting something at The Albert Hall at the time that Tiffany had been allegedly pushed down the stairs by Grant when actually she had tripped,' Ross revealed. 'I said "Are you sure you want me to give out this award?" I walked on to the Albert Hall, and [the audience] just went BOO!'

James Jordan caused a stir on Loose Women when he admitted being disappointed to be partnered with Pamela Stephenson on Strictly Come Dancing, who was 61 during the series in 2010, because she was a 'grandma'.
'The year that I got Pamela Stephenson I was slightly gutted because she was a grandma and slightly older,' he said to gasps from the audience.
'I don't dance like I did 10 years ago, that's a fact of life, unfortunately,' he said of the ageing process. 'Would I prefer someone aged 20 with loads of dance training, of course I would. It makes my job a lot easier.'
But James, who left Strictly in 2013, admitted her was wrong to prejudge Pamela's dancing ability.
'In hindsight, once I started training her, I realised this woman was amazing,' he said. 'And she made it the final. It was great.'
They were huge starts in the 80s and the best of friends too. But it wasn't always plain sailing for Boy George and Marilyn. According to a friend, the pair were frenemies, saying, 'Marilyn and Boy George used to hate each other. Boy George always hated Marilyn because he was so pretty and Marilyn always hated Boy George because he was so famous.'
But Boy George told Loose Women he put those jealous days behind him a long time ago and he and Marilyn are closer than ever.
In fact, Boy George became visibly emotional as Marilyn described their friendship on Loose Women.
'He is an amazing person,' Marilyn said as Boy blinked tears away. 'I am lucky to have him as a friend. With him, if he says something, he does it. If he says something he follows it through with actions. I can trust him.'
