Jim Parson’s birthday celebrations have been kicking off for almost a week now, but his The Big Bang Theory co-star Simon Helberg has taken tributes to the next level.

The Sheldon Cooper actor turned 46 yesterday, and subsequently celebrated his birthday for the final time as part of The Big Bang Theory after 12 years – so it was a lot.

After Mayim Bialik – who stars as Sheldon’s long-suffering wife Amy in the NBC sitcom – revealed behind-the-scenes pictures of Jim being surprised with a humongous birthday cake, Simon shared an epic collage celebrating the past 12 seasons as the main man’s co-star.

Hearts have melted.

The Big Bang Theory cast are currently in the middle of bracing themselves for an epic finale, which was confirmed to be hitting our screens on Thursday, May 16 with just six episodes to go.

However, we will be bowing out with a double-bill, so you can take some solace in that, but for the first time in the show’s history the episode will be filmed without a live studio audience because it’s that emotional.

Kaley Cuoco revealed to E! News: ‘We’re actually going to pre-shoot the whole thing, so we’ll have shot it, and then we will have an audience taping.

’That was probably because they knew I’d be crying the entire time. ‘So we still want the audience experience…so we’re gonna still do the audience, but we will have taped it and shot it beforehand, so if the tears come unexpectedly, then that’s just what’s going to happen, because I guarantee you it’s going to happen.’

While we know next to nothing about the finale, it’s not been speculated that Sheldon’s end game was teased way back in season seven when he went to meet a psychic with Penny.

The Big Bang Theory airs Thursdays on CBS in the UK and E4 in the UK.
