Actor John Thomson, who plays Pete, had warned that his character would go through some tough times in the rebooted series, and those times seem to have arrived.

In the latest instalment, while the rest of the gang juggled their busy lives, romances and careers, Pete's misery started to become evident.

Then Adam (James Nesbitt) twigged that he was depressed, before viewers saw Pete sitting sobbing in a dark room.

And his tears triggered those fans on Twitter, who have been posting messages saying they are "heartbroken" for poor Pete.

Viewers were seriously impressed with John's acting chops.
