EastEnders star Jasmine Armfield, who plays Bex Fowler, is leaving the BBC One soap and has reportedly already filmed her final scenes.
The 20-year-old actress has been playing Martin and Sonia Fowler's daughter since she was just 15-years-old and after five years she has now quit the part.
After joining Albert Square in 2014, her character has gone on to have some dark storylines including one of the biggest plots of 2019.
Last year Jasmine's character went through depression and attempted to take her own life but fought to get her life back on track.
It's rumoured her exit could tie-in with the show's special 35th anniversary episode.
