Eastenders Actor Announces Departure From Soap
Timothy West is leaving his role as Stan Carter in Eastenders.
The 79-year-old will say goodbye to Albert Square at the end of his current contract, after almost a year of playing Stan.
Executive producer Dominic Treadwell-Collins told the Daily Star Sunday that there are exciting scenes in store as Stan "pulls out all the stops and gives his King Lear" before he leaves Eastenders.

Last December, it was announced that Timothy would be joining the soap and he was first shown on our screens last January.
It's thought that Timothy had only planned to stay on the show for a short period of time.
We're pretty sure that there will be interesting scenes in the lead-up to his exit from the soap...
