Now actor Jake Wood is set to bid farewell to Albert Square next week after confirming his departure in September 2020.

Jake, 48, previously assured fans that he won't be leaving in a body bag. However, EastEnders spoilers have revealed Max will continue to reel from his split with Linda and feud with Sharon next week – and wonder whether he'd be better off leaving Walford after all.

After coming across a flyer, Max meets with a clairvoyant called Bea and breaks down during their meeting.

Later, viewers will see Max drowning his sorrows with a bottle of whiskey and stumbling around the Square.

She returned to the show back in June after a year away following her first pregnancy.

EastEnders bosses have confirmed actor Davood Ghadami will be leaving his role as Kush as part of an “explosive" storyline set to play out into 2021. 

And viewers know that Gray Atkins was left seething when he spotted Kush Kazemi and Whitney Dean flirting last week – so will Kush be Gray's next victim?

Big Mo

Actress Laila Morse is to leave the soap after more than 20 years – but she is expected to return.

The star, 75, has played market dealer Big Mo since 2000 with writers yet to craft an exit for the iconic character.

An EastEnders spokeswoman said: “Just like many occasions before, Big Mo will be departing Walford but as always she’ll no doubt be back in the not too distant future”.
