Jonny Labey confirms his exit from EastEnders
A spokesperson for the soap added: "We can confirm Jonny will be leaving the show later this year. We wish him all the best for the future."
Jonny joined the EastEnders cast in June 2015. A show insider told Digital Spy: "Jonny is leaving in a couple of months as part of an explosive storyline.
"Bosses are keeping tight-lipped about what's in store, but there's plenty of drama in store for Paul before he leaves."
Hairdresser Paul has been at the centre of a major ongoing storyline thanks to his secret romance with Ben Mitchell (Harry Reid), the son of notorious 'bad man' Phil Mitchell. Next week, viewers will see Paul and Ben finally go public with their romance at the Queen Vic – but the nature of Paul's exit seems to suggest there won't be a happy ending for the couple.
