Another Eastenders' star to quit Albert Square

Richard Blackwood has confirmed he's leaving Eastenders.

The actor, who joined the soap three years ago, says it feels like the right time to go, although he'll be "sad to say goodbye".

A spokesperson for the programme says he'll be leaving this Spring.

Viewers have watched as Richard's character Vincent has been put through hell in recent months.

After becoming entangled with gangster Aidan Maguire's heist scheme, it was revealed that Vincent had been partially responsible for Aidan's brother's death.

He has also been blighted with financial problems, and hasn't helped matters by hiding them from his wife Kim.
