"Priya Sharma has left the building. She is a fabulous actress and has been a huge part of the show and our Sharma family.

"We have been through the highs & lows but, most importantly, always had the most fun filming together. We're all sad to see her go and will miss her immensely.

"Good luck for the future. Whatever you do, you'll always be my sis".

Fiona replied: "Ahh bro I love you. Thankyou!! I couldn’t have got through without my sharma family!

"Thankyou for always being there and for being the best bro! What amazing memories I will have forever Xxxx" (sic).

Meanwhile, Fiona also took to social media to share her memories from her decade on the ITV soap.

Posting a black and white tribute reel of pictures of her castmates, Fiona penned an emotional statement as she said goodbye to her friends, castmates as well as thanking her fans.

Speaking about her exit when it was announced, Fiona said: "It was one of the hardest decisions I've had to make. Leaving my Emmerdale family is a big thing and it wasn't easy filming my last scenes.

"When you've been somewhere for that long and that's your every day, it's hard and feels sad. But as every actor knows, you need to challenge yourself and that's very important too."

Emmerdale airs on weeknights at 7.30pm on ITV1, and streams on ITVX.
