EastEnders star Charlie Clements has admitted that he is feeling "drained" and "emotional" after performing his character's death scene live to the nation.

Earlier tonight, viewers watched Clements's alter ego Bradley Branning fall from the roof of the Queen Vic while being chased by police investigating Archie Mitchell's murder.

Speaking immediately afterwards on BBC Three's EastEnders Live: The Aftermath, Clements commented: "I am drained of everything, I tell you! It's crazy. It's been so emotional. It was a big way to go out."

In the moments after his roof fall, Bradley's guilt-ridden wife Stacey (Lacey Turner) was seen confessing to Max (Jake Wood) that she was Archie's killer, bringing the BBC soap's long-running murder mystery plotline to a climax.

On the choice of Stacey as the culprit, Clements said: "I am surprised. I didn't know who it was going to be. [The producers have] done wonders. It was probably the biggest secret on TV ever!"

Meanwhile, Clements's co-star Nina Wadia (Zainab Masood) revealed that the actor had shed tears over his soap exit before the live episode went on air.

She said: "He was teary before filming. He was very teary."
