Last night, E4's first-look saw Gilly (Anthony Quinlan) found not guilty of sexually assaulting Jacqui McQueen on Valentine's night by the jury, as the week-long trial comes to a conclusion.
Writing on Twitter, Cooper told fans: "Hi all...just been reading through all your messages..many thanks to each one of you....its been tough.....certainly has for us...and has still left you all split...its the 'grey area'... Tragic... (sic)"
Speaking about the storyline, she continued: "All I can say to those who ask what my thoughts are on the Trial..exactly what I said on [Fern Britton's chatshow].
"Jacqui believes she is telling the truth..her Truth..she is a strong,brash woman but not vindictive it was a huge responsibility for her to take it to court and she has no regrets in doing so..credit to her."
She added: "It will be interesting to watch her develop over the next few months..the aftermath..recovery."
The verdict will be shown tonight at 6.30pm on Channel 4.
