So Outnumbered is over. The final episode of the improvised family comedy aired on BBC1 last night. And we’re not alone in thinking this is the end of an era.
Twitter was awash with tears, farewells… (and declarations of ‘I am Spartacus’)

Very sad that #Outnumbered has drawn to a close. Such a clever and brilliantly cast comedy.

Watched the last episode of outnumbered last night and it was great! Left me smiling but gutted that’s the end 🙁

For some fans, it just all got too much…
Finished watching Outnumbered. *sobs openly*

I might sit and watch all of my #outnumbered dvds and eat chocolate and cry

Loved #Outnumbered lots. I cried a bit at the end and I'm not ashamed.

Some struggled to let go. You’ve got to stop watching it at some point, Brammall.
Watching last nights Outnumbered again. What a great series it has been over the years. Such a brilliant cast and first class writing.

In literally any form.
Other fans seemed to have missed the news that last night’s episode was the final. Ever.
Crying at Outnumbered’s Sparticus. I hope this episode wasn’t the last one!

Sorry, Cherry Pop…
Omg, was it the last ever outnumbered last night? ?

Erm. Yes, yes it was Liv Snooks.
Meanwhile, over at BBC HQ, emotional farewells were pushed aside as their Twitter accounts battled it out to be Spartacus.
I AM SPARTACUS! #Outnumbered
