Paddy’s friends rallied round to try to help him open up.
This marks the first time the ITV soap has featured an episode with this theme.
It follows on from the focus on the mental health struggles of Paddy who found out his wife Chas was cheating on him.
In the episode, Liam opened up about how he was saved from a suicide attempt at university, Jimmy told how he struggles with the loss of his three brothers and Sam flashed everyone by showing them a nasty boil on his privates.
Producer Laura Shaw recently explained how she came into contact with Andy’s Man Club, a charity which sees groups of men meet once a week for a well-needed chat, which inspired the storyline.
Fans commended Danny's openness about his depression.
One said: "As someone who has battled with mental health and depression since my teens, Aaron"s story and indeed your own personal strength has been integral in me still being here.
"Even now, your Instagram posts are an absolute saving outlet of joy. Inspirational. Thanks for everything."
Others pleaded for the actor to return to the soap, as one wrote: "I think an Aaron visit to Paddy would also go down well."
