The 26-year-old actor was close friends with top celebrity agent Terry, 38, who lost his battle with coronavirus while in Mexico.
In a heartbreaking video shared to his Instagram stories, Max is seen dancing with Terry.
The pair each have a drink in their hands as they fool around to the music and Max recites the French lyrics.
Captioning the video, Max wrote: "A week ago you left and it's a pain that doesn't pass.
"Miss you more by the minute. Thanks for lighting up our lives x".
When Terry passed away last week, Max spoke of his "wonderful friend" in a passionate post and said that Terry had supported him through dark times in his life.
The shattered star wrote: "I will love you until my last breath. You took me in when no one else would have me. You looked after me, and protected me when I was at my lowest. You nurtured me and helped me see light.
"You sprayed my feet when they were stinking out the house. All you did was care about the people you loved. When things got bad, we’d cuddle each other on that sofa in Marylebone like two toddlers, and tell each other we’ve got this.
"You battled everything, daily, and won. And this time this c**t of a virus got you. But you still fought. I don’t know a life without you. I don’t want a life without you. But I know you’ll be with me.
The actor also shared memories of his good times with Terry, remembering when he welcomed his family with open arms at the National Television Awards.
He went on: "You made my family feel like they were the only people in the world. I will never forget when you ran down the red carpet at the NTAs to make my Nan feel like a queen.
"The last messages we sent each other before you fell ill, were that we loved each other. And I always will Tel. Thank you for every thing you gave me. My life will never be the same. Sleep well, my wonderful friend. 💔"
Last month Max begged fans to donate to a GoFundMe page for Terry, who was fighting for his life in a hospital in Cancun, Mexico.
Max had already donated £500 to the fundraiser, with Kate Ferdinand also among the big-hearted stars to have put their hands in their pockets – donating £1,000.
The fundraiser has already raised £45,000.
Terry Mills was one of the best known and beloved celebrity agents in the business, looking after the likes of Towie star Yazmin Oukhellou, Gogglebox’s Amy Tapper, and Callum Izzard from ITV2’s Ibiza Weekender.
