Max – best known as Walford's Ben Mitchell – also revealed that he'd had a tattoo in honour of his late friend.

Sharing a snap of them together, he wrote: "One year on to the day, and I miss you more now than ever."

"I'm struggling tonight with enormous grief," he said.

"Life isn't fair. My beautiful best friend passed one year ago today.

"Life was turned upside down over night.

"Miss your laugh. Miss your appalling golf. Miss telling you I love you, and that I hate you."

"It's strange as time is supposed to be a healer, but I think ironically it has got worse," the actor went on.

"Life is so short. Tell the people you love that you love them."

"DJ M squared will live on my brother," added the star.

Max also shared a photograph of a new inking on his wrist – a cowboy hat with the date of Maxwell's death (11 September 2021).

His Albert Square co-star Danielle Harold shared a single red heart emoji, while many others said they were thinking of him.

"Sending you big hugs Max," wrote one fan in the comments section.

Another posted: "Time doesn't heal like they say, we just grow used to dealing with life in a different way. The comfort I take is that I know because my grief and heartache is so deep I truly did love them and I know they know they know that."
