Marc Elliott & John Partridge Leaving EASTENDERS

EASTENDERS cast members Marc Elliott and John Partridge, who play lovers Syed Masood and Christian Clarke, are leaving the BBC One soap.

Elliott said his time on the series had been "brilliant", adding he was pleased at how it had addressed "the sensitive subject matter of being a gay Muslim".

Partridge echoed those sentiments but said that "leaving at the same time as Marc felt like the only thing to do".

"I have had the time of my life at EASTENDERS but I have always gone with my gut," he said.

"It is the right end to the story, and for Christian. But also, excitingly, the start of a whole new chapter for me."

How and when the characters will leave the show is not yet known.

  1. Sad, but not surprising due to the lack of storyline they've had lately. Let's just hope this couple leaves Albert Square together, and not on separate trains ... or one of them already six-feet under out in the North Walford Cemetery.
