EASTENDERS star Natalie Cassidy revealed her heartache at making her first roast dinner since her dad's death in an emotional Father's Day post on Sunday.
She shared a photo of her dinner and wrote: "The first roast I have had since my dad has been gone. That was a tough day."
The positive star added "tomorrow (is) a new one" along with a thumbs up in her post on Instagram.
Natalie's dad Charles had been living with her and fiance Marc Humphreys and their two children, Eliza, 10, and Joanie, four.
The 38-year-old actress – who plays Sonia Fowler in EastEnders – announced his passing last month in a heartbreaking message to fans.
She wrote: "I’ve been very quiet the last few weeks. I lost my precious daddy three weeks ago today. I wasn’t really going to do this post, but I felt I can’t come on here and be a knob without letting everyone know that my life has changed.
"He was my whole world and I’m not sure what I’m going to do without him. All I know is my family, friends and work will make it easier. I cannot believe how lucky I am to have such wonderful people in my life.
"It really is at these times you realise how important relationships are and company and friendship and love is so important. Losing anyone is hard. The NEVER seeing someone again is cruel. But it’s part of life. And we go on and have our memories.
"Charles William Cassidy 1937-2021. The best dad and grandad in the world. We miss you so much but we have each other because of you. ♥️"
Natalie’s mum Evelyn died when the actress was just 19 years old.
She had bowel cancer and passed away in 2002 at the age of 63.
Natalie returned to EastEnders as Sonia Fowler in April this year after writers decided to give her character a break.
Sonia first appeared on Albert Square in 1993 and has been a part of the show ever since.
