Speaking on Netmums’ Sweat, Snot and Tears podcast on Tuesday, she said: ‘It kind of felt like I’d just been given the news that a friend had become terminally ill or something.
‘It’s my character, I should know more than anybody that it’s not real. I felt like all of a sudden I had to mourn my character, say goodbye to my character.
‘I would get dressed in the morning in the months leading up to it and I would do things like put on Chantelle’s wedding ring and think oh my goodness is this the last time she is going to wear it sort of thing. It was weird.’

Jessica learned of her character’s journey in Christmas 2019, and thought the UK’s lockdown amid the Covid-19 crisis might have meant the storyline would have been prolonged, but she realised it was better the plot happened the way it did.
The actress – who went on to appear on ‘I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!’ late last year – admitted she felt her Walford departure would be ‘worth it’ if it results in one woman escaping an abusive relationship in real life.
She added: ‘I was sad to leave EastEnders, but if it means one woman escapes her domestic abusive relationship, it was worth it.’
Jessica recently admitted she would return to the BBC One soap, despite Chantelle being dead.
