EastEnders star Aaron Sidwell is leaving the BBC One soap

EastEnders star Aaron Sidwell is leaving the BBC One soap

EastEnders actor Aaron Sidwell will leave the soap "following dramatic scenes" involving his character Steven Beale, the BBC has confirmed.

As fans have seen, Steven's been lying to girlfriend Lauren about having a brain tumour in a desperate attempt to stop her from tracking down his brother - and father of Lauren's son - Peter Beale. "We wish Aaron all the very best for the future".

Max Branning is in on the lies too, and he has no plans of letting up.

Prudential Financial, Inc. (NYSE:PRU) Stake Decreased by Clearbridge Investments LLC
Wells Fargo & Company reiterated a "hold" rating on shares of Prudential Financial in a research note on Tuesday, June 6th. The New York-based Millennium Mngmt Ltd Liability Corporation has invested 0.08% in Prudential Financial Inc (NYSE: PRU ).

Steven returned to the show a year ago with his girlfriend Lauren Branning and his nephew Louie (who's the son of his half-brother brother Peter).

The soap actor, who The Sun exclusively revealed would soon be quitting Walford, revealed his inner pain as he shot his latest explosive plot for the BBC show. However, he later returned in 2016 with Lauren and Louie and Ian quickly forgave Steven and welcome him back into the family home. But when Max menacingly told him that Carmel was disposable to him whereas Lauren wasn't to Steven, Steven realised that he had lost his trump card.

A source said: "Obviously this storyline has caused a lot of controversy".

He told show host Christine Lampard: 'It's a hard thing to portray it convincingly, you have to rationalise it in your head as he would. "He's sworn to secrecy and so is everyone else in the cast and crew".

Steven was oblivious over how to do this but Max made it clear that if he didn't do it - even if he used some unsavoury methods of persuasion - then his brain tumour lie would be exposed to Lauren.

As Max is hell-bent on getting revenge on the entire square we're wondering if he'll have something to do with Steven's exit... Are you sad to see him go after bringing so much drama to the square? Let us know on Facebook or Twitter.
