EastEnders star Jamie Lomas has been axed from the show after just a year.
The actor, 33, joined the soap last year as recovering alcoholic Jake Stone, but he will leave Walford this summer as his one-year contract hasn’t been renewed. A source said, ‘Bosses feel the character has run his course and their decision is final.’
However Jamie, who recently split from his wife, Corrie’s Kym Lomas, has assured his fans that the move was amicable and urged them to stay tuned for his final scenes.
‘There’s still loads more amazing stuff to come!’ he wrote on Twitter, before calling his boss, executive producer Dominic Treadwell-Collins a ‘legend.’
