Alex Walkinshaw has said that his final scenes on The Bill were emotional to shoot.

The 35-year-old actor, who plays Smithy in the serial, admitted that leaving behind some of his co-stars is "tough".

He told TV Times: "It was emotional shooting the final scenes, although there was a lot of good humour still going around.

"As each week passed, more and more people left and the building got quieter. It was tough, but the sense of humour on the set was still alive and kicking right through to the very last."
