EastEnders Star Pays Tribute To Cheryl Fergison As Heather Trott

EastEnders star Linda Henry has paid tribute to Cheryl Fergison, whose final scenes as Heather Trott will be broadcast this week.

The character meets a horrible demise in Monday night's episode when she has inadvertedly murdered by Ben Mitchell.

Henry, who plays Heather's best friend Shirley, said: "The public took to [Heather] immediately. It could have been a one-dimensional role, but Cheryl has brought so many different layers to Heather. I don't think there is anyone who could have played Heather like Cheryl.

 "We just immediately, and I'm not just saying this, clicked." 

Henry also confirmed that Fergison decided to stay on set for the scenes immediately following her demise. 

"Cheryl decided to play the corpse, because she knew how much that meant to us and how much we would relate to seeing her there." 

Henry and more EastEnders faces discuss the exit of Fergison on EastEnders Revealed: The Murder

EastEnders Revealed: The Murder airs on Thursday 22 March at 8pm on BBC Three.

Heather was amazing person. Everytime I watched eastenders and I seen heather she made me smile. the atmosphere on eastenders was an happy atmosphere because heather was on it. I have never seen heather so happy since the first time I watched eastenders. Love you loads heather
Ben is an evil boy ben should go to jail not andrew. If the bosses and heather had a dis agreement over heather moving in with her boyfriend thats just not fair. Heather like you said on tv you should come back in as another character you should. Am the biggest fan of heather. Love you loads heather.
