EastEnders spoilers – Inside Stuart Highway’s dramatic Walford exit; plus Coronation Street and Emmerdale news


EASTENDERS fans are in for a dramatic series of episodes as Stuart Highway’s heartwrenching storyline comes to an end.

Stuart Highway, who is played by Ricky Champ, has been suffering from depression for some time, and in upcoming scenes, these struggles are set to come to a head.

The EastEnders icon will lash out and take a GP hostage as part of his dramatic exit storyline.

Despite Karen Taylor trying her best to help the struggling character, nobody has got through to Stu.

Following the revelation that he has postnatal depression, Stuart’s heartache was compounded when doctors diagnosed him with male breast cancer.

After a frosty encounter with his former friend Mick (Danny Dyer), Stuart gets rid of his antidepressants and purchases some drugs.

Things go from bad to worse as Highway fails to get a GP appointment.

Enraged, Stuart takes drastic action.

Richy Champ’s exit from the iconic soap comes as part of the mass exodus of characters announced earlier this year, as the show’s bosses attempt a huge cast and producer shake-up.
