Jessica addressed the end of her stint on the show by sharing a snap of herself in Albert Square’s iconic pub The Queen Vic, alongside a bust of Victoria.
She added in a post in view of her 119,000 followers this evening: “My heart is bleeding for Chantelle, and it bleeds for the woman that is killed every 4 days at the hands of a current or ex partner.
“So much research went into this story line, and I am so thankful to Women’s Aid and Refuge for their support and the lifesaving work that they do.
“I hope off the back of our collaborative work, people will speak out when maybe otherwise would have stayed silent. Or a friend or family member will check in with someone they might be worried about.
“What Chantelle went through is happening day in day out and as we’ve seen, can go unnoticed.”
