EastEnders star Max Bowden says his 'heart's in bits' after second friend in a year dies suddenly
EASTENDERS star Max Bowden says his "heart's in bits" after the death of a second friend in a year.
The actor, 26, shared a picture of pal Luke Goodings as he told fans he had passed away.
"Heart's in bits right now.," wrote Max.
"Lukey, will always love you my bro.
"Rest easy now. Freestyle the s*** out of it up there."
Max has been grieving the loss of his friend and top celebrity agent Terry Mills who lost his battle with coronavirus last year.
The TV star, who plays Ben Mitchell on the BBC One soap, was devastated 38-year-old Terry's death in Mexico.
Max, 26, spoke of his "wonderful friend" in a passionate post and said that Terry had supported him through dark times in his life.
The shattered star wrote: "I will love you until my last breath. You took me in when no one else would have me. You looked after me, and protected me when I was at my lowest. You nurtured me and helped me see light.
"You sprayed my feet when they were stinking out the house. All you did was care about the people you loved. When things got bad, we’d cuddle each other on that sofa in Marylebone like two toddlers, and tell each other we’ve got this.
"You battled everything, daily, and won. And this time this c**t of a virus got you. But you still fought. I don’t know a life without you. I don’t want a life without you. But I know you’ll be with me.
The actor also shared memories of his good times with Terry, remembering when he welcomed his family with open arms at the National Television Awards.
He went on: "You made my family feel like they were the only people in the world. I will never forget when you ran down the red carpet at the NTAs to make my Nan feel like a queen.
"The last messages we sent each other before you fell ill, were that we loved each other. And I always will Tel. Thank you for every thing you gave me. My life will never be the same. Sleep well, my wonderful friend. 💔"
Max had begged fans to donate to a GoFundMe page for Terry, who was fighting for his life in a hospital in Cancun, Mexico.
It's not yet known how his other friend Luke died, but Max paid tribute on Instagram today.
