Just over a year after his return, Steven Beale is once again bidding farewell to Albert Square.

Aaron Sidwell, 28, has once again decided to leave his role as the troubled Steven Beale – but not before one final explosive storyline.

Since his return last year, his storylines have seen him repairing his relationship with both Ian and Jane, a manipulative relationship and subsequent engagement with his brother’s ex Lauren Branning, a feud with her boss Josh and an affair with her sister Abi.

A spokesperson for EastEnders said:  “Aaron Sidwell is part of one of the big upcoming storylines and we can confirm, following dramatic scenes to be aired later this summer, he will be leaving the show. We wish Aaron all the very best for the future.”

EastEnders continues tomorrow at 7.30pm on BBC One.
