Call The Midwife viewers were distraught when they saw one of the show's favourite character's time come to an end in an emotional final of the programme.
Lizzie Yue – who was played by Rebecca Hyde – was killed in a car crash with a head injury alongside her husband while pregnant.
Dr Turner and Shelagh rushed to help Lizzie by performing a caesarean in the middle of the street to deliver her baby, but he sadly found expectant Lizzie had already passed away minutes before.
Fans of the drama were left devastated by the ending, with one writing on Twitter: "Ok I’m crying like a baby right now."
"I need to stop crying at #CallTheMidwife," another said, while a third wrote: "Bloody Call the Midwife. I’m crying again. Never a week goes by #callthemidwife."
One social media user said: "It’s not a Sunday evening if I’m not crying at call the midwife."
Actress Helen George – who plays Trixie on the show – confirmed that there would be a "tragedy" in the highly-anticipated episode before it aired.
Speaking to the Radio Times: "There's a lot of calamity and fun to be had with it but of course it's Call the Midwife, so there's a flip side.
"There's a downside and there's a tragedy, but there's also a very beautiful payoff and I hope people will really enjoy it, because we did."
The finale saw Trixie marry boyfriend Matthew Aylward – played by Olly Rix – and pictures first emerged of their wedding scenes back in November last year.
Trixie was seen wearing an off-the-shoulder 1960s wedding dress with pearl buttons at the sleeves and a flowing veil attached to a pillbox hat.
Carrying a bouquet of pink and white roses, her blonde hair was styled in a sleek low bun with a side parting to her fringe.
It comes after Helen, who has been a fan favourite of the show for years, previously opened up on her second pregnancy with her daughter Lark.
She described how her experience of cholestasis during the second time she was expecting kept her "scratching all day and all night".
Helen – who is mum to Wren, five, and one year old Lark – shared: "I started getting the itch a lot earlier with this pregnancy and it was infuriating. I tried everything, creams, baths all of it and nothing would work.
"I would scratch all day and all night, normally on my hands, shoulders, feet but that quickly increased to just bloody everywhere. I was put onto medication (Urso) at around 30 wks."
