Tuesday's episode of Our Girl was a very emotional one...

Our Girl returned to our screens for series four last month, and it's already been an emotional one.

Viewers were close to tears during the first episode after heartbreaking flashbacks (opens in new tab), and the fourth episode only upped the emotions.

In dramatic scenes, Frankie "Fingers" Stille (Sean Ward) died after suffering a bleed and collapsed lung.

Long time friend and sister-in-law  Georgie Lane (Michelle Keegan) tried her best to save him from the fatal gunshot wound, but was unsuccessful.

And a fourth added, "I’m still upset from watching fingers die last night #ourgirl"

Prior to his death, Fingers had just married Georgie's sister Marie Lane (Linzey Cocker) which only added more emotion to the scene.

Fingers actor Sean Ward spoke to Digital Spy (opens in new tab) recently about his devastating exit.

He revealed, "I don't think it's properly hit me yet. It's been seven years and I feel like I've actually grown up on the show."

"When I first joined the show I was a little kid and we just got dropped in Africa, I had no agent, I was just getting back into acting and a lot of the skills that you learn behind the show with the army training and the camaraderie, the team and the families you build I think has helped me grow as a man a lot."

Our Girl continues on BBC1 next Tuesday, 21st April.
