Plenty of fans responded to the tweet expressing their sadness, too. One person replied saying: "These words make it more difficult to say goodbye. But every story has to end. But (thank dad, Netflix) we have the opportunity to watch every episode 'again and again and again'."

A second person said: "I love you all thank you for sharing little things with us even if they make me cry," as a third tweeted: "It's so sad to be saying goodbye but I'm sooooo thankful to have had this wonderful show for the last five series. Looking forward to 5b and 6. Thank you all for your wonderful hard work xx." Meanwhile, a fourth quipped: "I'm fine, I'm completely fine," alongside a crying meme.
