EastEnders" Kim Fox could be set to leave Walford.
The outspoken salon worker - played by Tameka Empson - is expected to tell sister Denise Fox (Diane Parish) that she is planning to swap Albert Square for Scotland in the coming weeks.
Kim is keen to start a new life in the country after being left devastated when her husband Vincent Hubbard (Richard Blackwood) disappeared from Walford in April 2018.
In October, Tameka hinted Richard could make a return to the BBC One soap to reprise his role as Kim's beloved Vincent, who was last seen trapped in a car with one of evil Aidan Maguire's (Patrick Bergin) cronies pointing a gun at him.
She said: "Where is he? I don't know. There are lots of answers that will come about come Christmas."
However, there is still no sign of Vincent.
Just days after his final appearance as Vincent, Richard admitted he was "surprised" his "EastEnders" contract was not renewed and said it was "scary" departing the show.
When asked if he was surprised about being let go, he said: "I was a little bit surprised, but my agent and myself wanted me to leave at a similar time, so it worked out to be mutual.
"The timing couldn't have been better. It's a great platform and it's regular work, which in the world of acting is a great feeling.
"To leave that is always a scary thing but we believed and knew that we have enough.
"I have a lot of respect for "EastEnders" - they took the risk when they cast me."
