Ted Reilly quits EastEnders

Ted Reilly has quit "EastEnders".

The 26-year-old actor - who joined the long-running soap just over a year ago - has decided to bow out of the show as the loveable Johnny Carter next year, but it's not yet known how he'll leave and whether the door will be left open for him to return one day.

A representative for the show told The Sun Online: "We can confirm Ted has finished filming with "EastEnders" and wish him all the best for the future."

It comes just weeks after Harry Reid - who plays gay mechanic Ben Mitchell - announced he was leaving the show over the festive season along with Jacqueline Jossa and Lorna Fitzgerald (Lauren and Abi Branning) in a dramatic storyline.

A source said recently of Harry's shock exit: "Fans of Ben and the Mitchell family will be shocked to see his departure from the soap. He will star in a big storyline before the end of the year and be written out of the show as a result."

Meanwhile, since taking on the role, Ted has been involved in some gripping plots - including being shot by Ted Murray (Christopher Timothy) after he was mistaken for an intruder, before the ambulance rushing him to hospital crashed into a tanker lorry.

This the latest blow to the Carter clan - who have been the focus of many storylines on the soap this year - as they've had to deal with Linda (Kellie Bright) being diagnosed with cancer, which led to her and her husband Mick (Danny Dyer) breaking up over the lies and secrets, and losing the beloved Queen Vic pub in a blackmail plot.
