Dancing On Ice's Gary Lucy is set to leave his role as Danny Pennant in Eastenders. The actor is believed to have already filmed his final scenes as the bi-sexual businessman and will leave screens next month.
The actor is believed to have been told that he would be leaving after a meeting with the show's producers where he was informed that his contract was not going to be extended.
Gary's stint in the show is his second after he first arrived in 2012 to cause trouble between Christian Clarke and Syed Masood before their exits.
A spokesperson for Eastenders said: ''We can confirm that Gary is leaving EastEnders later this year and we wish him all the best for the future.''
Meanwhile, a show source told the Daily Star Sunday: ''Since he returned we've seen Danny scheme and lie while enjoying relationships with both girls and boys.''
''Gary has come to the end of his current contract and after some discussion it was decided he would leave at the end of his current one.''
