For nine years, Bright and Dyer played Linda and Mick Carter, but Mick appeared to drown during the soap's annual Christmas Day special.
Following Dyer's much-publicised departure from the show, Bright has paid tribute to him on social media.
She wrote: "My Mick…. It was only a matter of time… but who would have thought that it would have taken 9 years for Mick and Linda to finally come to an end."
Bright continued to praise her co-star: "It has been, without a doubt, the best years of my life so far… for many reasons, but YOU @officialdannydyer are definitely one of them."
Posting a photo of the two of them, she added: "This photo was taken on our last day on set together (we were both a bit puffy eyed from the water tank) but it really sums us up. We made each other smile. Every day. I will always be grateful for that."
She signed off by saying: "See you in the real world very soon."
After some viewers speculated that Mick was not really dead as no body was recovered, Dyer squashed any possibility of a return, saying: "I don’t want to come back."
He also talked about his decision to step away from the soap after nine years of playing Mick: "Thirty years I’ve been knocking about in this industry and nearly 10 I’ve been in this show.
"To make the decision I made, I didn’t make it lightly. It’s a huge job to walk away from. I thought long and hard about it and I wanted it to be a fitting end, so hopefully, it is."
