87519616EastEnders actress Pam St Clement, best known for her role as colourful Pat Butcher, has talked about her departure from the hit BBC soap, saying that she got a great night’s sleep in her king size bed after shooting her final scenes. The 69-year-old will be saying her goodbyes after playing the character for 25 years. The dramatic episode – in which Pat passes away after her battle with Cancer – will be aired on the New Year’s Day episode of the show, true to tradition. She told the Sun newspaper (published January 1st): “[H]aving done those last scenes, it was the best night's sleep I've ever had.” The actress, who first appeared on the show back in 1986, went on to describe the emotions that were in the air when shooting her final scenes. She told the source: “There were a lot of people watching. Everybody seems to come out of the woodwork so they can say they were there when they saw an actor’s last scene. “There were tears from quite a lot of people.”
