Emma told her followers:  🖤POPPY DOG🖤 20-03-2008 – 22-10-2022. My beautiful girl… Now at peace…. My heart is broken…💔.”

The actress’s famous pals rushed to send their condolences, with co-star Milly Zero commenting: “Sorry for your loss x”

Rita Simons wrote: “I’m so sorry Ems.”

Jessie Wallace: “I’m so sorry. I know how much you loved her ❤.”

The actress first took on the role of EastEnders‘ Honey Mitchell (as a love interest for Billy Mitchell, played by Perry Fenwick) back in 2005, and stayed in the show until 2008.

She came back in 2014 on a temporary basis, but returned to the Square full time in late 2015.

Her character recently reunited with Billy – much to the delight of fans.

However their romance could be short lived as Billy (Perry Fenwick) has been set up for murder and could be going down for life.

Away from work, Emma relaxes by cooking and has previously appeared on Celebrity MasterChef.

In 2019, the BBC star joined Strictly Come Dancing and was partner with pro dancer Anton Du Beke.

The pair wowed audiences and made it to the final, but unfortunately missed out on nabbing the glitterball trophy to Kelvin Fletcher and Oti Mabuse.
