Writing on Twitter last night, Cooper thanked the programme's team, singling out executive producer Bryan Kirkwood for creating her character in 2006.

She said: "So.. I arrived home with my last jacqui Outfit.. Rings, hoops & boots lay on my floor....the Formidable lady Jacqui McQueen rests....

"Thank you to my dear @Hollyoaks @C4Insider family ...You guys are incredible people, I've had a life changing 6yrs & the cast, crew & every dept...have made it so very special.... Always a place in my heart #unforgettable #hollyoaks.

"My dearest Bryan Kirkwood... Thank you... Thank you ...You are incredible ... thank you for creating Miss J McQueen @Hollyoaks .. Coops xx"












Cooper announced her decision to leave Hollyoaks last week, explaining that she wanted to "explore other avenues and see what other stories I can tell".

Show boss Kirkwood said at the time: "I'm devastated to be losing Jacqui, but after six years of her wearing those thigh-high PVC boots, I respect Claire's need to explore other roles. I wish her the best of luck - not that she'll need it."

Hollyoaks will air Jacqui's final scenes in April as she bows out in "a dramatic effort to bring her family back together".
