'EastEnders' star Ben Hardy is sad to see Hetti Bywater leave the soap.

The blonde actress' alter-ego Lucy Beale was recently killed off in the BBC One soap and Ben - who plays Lucy's twin Peter Beale - admits he was disappointed his "good friend" axed.

He told Attitude magazine: "I get on well with Hetti. I'm really sad that she's leaving, we were really good friends. So that's a shame."

Ben admits the emotional scenes were difficult to film but he was thrilled he was able to get "stuck into" the scenes.

He explained: "The first few months I was on the show I was doing some good stuff - love story, little secret. But to get such a big storyline with me and Adam ... the reactions to the death of Lucy were really challenging but also something I was really looking forward to getting stuck into."

Ben also gets on well with his on-screen dad, Adam Woodyatt (Ian Beale) because they both have "geeky" personalities.

He added: "I get on with Adam, we're both quite geeky. We both just play with our phones off set."
