EastEnders star Max Bowden has said that his ‘heart’s in bitsfollowing the death of friend Luke Goodings.

The actor, who portrays Ben Mitchell in the BBC One soap, shared the news of Luke’s passing on social media.

‘Heart’s in bits right now,’ he wrote on his Instagram Stories.

‘Lukey, will always love you my bro.

‘Rest easy now. Freestyle the s*** out of it up there.’

Max was left devastated earlier this year after his mate and celebrity agent Terry Mills passed away following a battle with Covid-19.

‘I will love you until my last breath,’ the actor, 26, wrote on Instagram at the time. ‘You took me in when no one else would have me. You looked after me, and protected me when I was at my lowest. You nurtured me and helped me see light. You sprayed my feet when they were stinking out the house.

‘All you did was care about the people you loved. When things got bad, we’d cuddle each other on that sofa in Marylebone like two toddlers, and tell each other we’ve got this. You battled everything, daily, and won. And this time this c*** of a virus got you. 

‘But you still fought. I don’t know a life without you. I don’t want a life without you. But I know you’ll be with me. You made my family feel like they were the only people in the world.

‘I will never forget when you ran down the red carpet at the NTAs to make my Nan feel like a queen. The last messages we sent each other before you fell ill, were that we loved each other. And I always will Tel. 

‘Thank you for every thing you gave me. My life will never be the same. Sleep well, my wonderful friend.’

Max has portrayed Ben Mitchell in EastEnders since April 1, 2019. He took over the role from Harry Reid, who had played the character between 2014 and 2018.
