Russell T Davies’ much-praised series aired it’s finale on Channel 4 on Friday, and viewers were left emotional to see Ritchie Tozer (Olly Alexander) die from Aids.

Viewers praised Lydia West for her portrayal of Jill Baxter, who was by Ritchie’s side throughout the ups and downs, even travelling to the Isle of Wight to try and convince Ritchie’s mother to allow him to see his best friends for one last time.
