EastEnders exit ‘sealed’ as legend stumbles upon upsetting discovery

EastEnders, which is already available on BBC iPlayer.

With Bobby Beale’s (Clay Milner Russell) days on Albert Square numbered, EastEnders has hinted at what could spark his exit.

The character is set to leave the BBC soap later this summer, but seemingly not before the love triangle between Bobby, Anna Knight (Molly Rainford) and Freddie Slater (Bobby Brazier) is revisited.

In scenes from the most recent episode, Freddie arranged a special date for best mate Bobby and Anna on the roof of the Queen Vic, where he served as the couple’s own personal butler.

Ian Beale’s youngest son could be seen looking dejected as he picked up on the obvious chemistry between his girlfriend and best friend, who previously had a one night stand.

Their hook up sparked a falling out between Freddie and Bobby, with Bobby devastated to hear his pal had slept with the girl he knew he was crushing on.

With Anna and Bobby now coupled up, it looks like Freddie is set to come between them once again – is this what will lead to Bobby’s forthcoming departure from Walford?

Back in April, it was confirmed that Clay would be leaving EastEnders after five years in the role of Bobby.

He is the fifth actor to play the character, with the role recast from previous star Eliot Carrington when the character was released from prison in 2019, after serving time for the murder of his sister Lucy Beale (Hetti Bywater).
