Kara Tointon and Ricky Groves are leaving EastEnders.
Kara, best known as sultry Dawn Swann, and Ricky, who plays Garry Hobbs, will go out with a bang this summer, The Sun reports.
“Viewers will have to wait and see if there is a happy ending, or whether they go their separate ways,” a source said.
Speaking about her time on the show, Kara said: “It has been the best four years of my life. I will always hold the show dear to my heart and be an avid fan.”
Meanwhile, Ricky admitted: “It has been wonderful playing Garry. But I am looking forward to new things.”
Soap boss Diederick Santer paid tribute to their ‘great performances’ and said: “Ricky and Kara go with our thanks and our best wishes.”
