"Honestly, I started the show with you and I love him so much! Tobi is the best, he's so funny, he's a really good person. I don't want to talk about it, I'm still emotional about this!"

Tobi left after season ten

Ralf Little also admitted that it was a tough time - and that he even asked Tobi not to leave! He explained: "We knew what was happening since we'd read the scripts, but Tobi and I always have a laugh with each other and play football together... we're guys and we're not necessarily given to expressing feelings as openly as perhaps we should... but in the last two or three weeks, we'd have a scene, and I'd be like, 'Don't go.'

"At first he thought I was joking, then he realised I meant it and said, 'It's a done deal.' But he hasn't had himself killed off so there's still a chance!"
