The two characters were killed off on Ronnie and Jack’s wedding night, and many viewers shared their grief over the storyline, as well as their disappointment at the fact that the characters had been written out.
Actresses Samantha Womack and Rita Simons also expressed their sadness at the storyline, but Scott appears to have defended the soap bosses’ decision.
Speaking to OK! Magazine about the plot, he says: “That’s the nature of soaps.
Another person who was vocal about their dislike of the plans was Dame Barbara Windsor, who claimed at the time: “It wasn’t the girls’ choice. It’s the new producer’s decision.
“I’m sure he’ll be good for the show, but that is a mistake. When I heard I was shocked.”
Scott’s character Jack is still struggling to cope following the death of his wife, and recent episodes have seen him lean on his brother Max for support.
