How will Jags leave Eastenders?

Official spoilers have revealed that Suki will brutally betray her son next week on the soap when he announces his new relationship with Habiba to the family.

With scheming Suki having already shown what she’s capable of by faking having cancer, what could the scheming matriarch have done this time?

Speaking about his character’s exit storyline, actor Amar Adatia said: “I can’t share too much about what happens but it serves to further prove just how far Suki will go to get her way!”

He added: “Jags went against her and being the strong women she is, just like their father in the past, anyone that goes against her doesn’t tend to fare so well.”

 Why is Amar Adatia leaving the soap?

Actor Amar Adatia is leaving the soap to pursue other projects.

Speaking about his latest Hollywood project, he said: “I make films, so I’ve held out on my newest film until I finished at EastEnders because it’s difficult to promote it whilst filming at the same time and with the pandemic everything has been pushed back timings wise.

“It’s called R.I.A which is a sci-fi film with Luke Goss, Dean Cain and myself and many other names – we shot it all in America just before I got the EastEnders gig actually.

“I’ll hopefully be doing a tour for that with premiere’s at the end of the year. I start shooting a whodunnit film in January, with some amazing names.

“I also have a boxing film that I’m making in summer next year so I’m working on getting in shape for that – the opposite of Jags! I’m looking forward to it and getting into training.”

Amar confirmed that he has filmed his final scenes after extending his original contract due to the pandemic: “I always knew I’d only be in the show for a set period of time when I signed up.

“I had just finished shooting a film and had prior commitments to promote that but then the pandemic hit and everything understandably got put on hold.

“With timings all pushed back, I was more than happy stay a little bit longer to make sure that we wrapped up Jags’ storyline properly.

“I was really lucky to have those extra months of filming and to spend time with everyone on set before I said goodbye.”

 Will Amar return to Eastenders? 

It’s not yet clear whether Jags will be leaving the Square in a body bag after messing with his mum Suki. 

So fans will have to tune in and watch his exit to find out whether the door will be left open for Jags’ return.
