“Keep doing your best because we think you’re great.”

He captioned the sweet post: “I work with some amazing people.”

The message was signed by the women at the EastEnders ‘ costume department, including Annie, Inca, Becky and Meg.

“Wasn’t ready to find this today,” he captioned the heartbreaking post.

Maxwell passed away in September, with the EastEnders star taking to Instagram to share the tragic news.

“Thank you for being my best friend for 15 years, for walking every avenue with me, entering into battle with me every time, lighting up my every minute of every day, and for loving me like you did,” he paid tribute to his pal.

“I will never have a better friend, and I will never love a man so much in my life. You were my soulmate, my rock, my ride or die, my everything – and I am so grateful that I got to call you my best friend. I am so so lucky.

“Junior and senior were always within two metres weren’t we, couldn’t leave each other’s side. No matter how f***ing much I tried, you’re stubborn a*** had to lure me back in”

The star had gone on to explain how lost he feels and thanked his friend for always being by his side.
