ACTRESS Tilly Keeper has spoken out to announce shes leaving EastEnders after four years playing Louise Mitchell.
But what fans really want to know is what is Louises exit storyline and will she ever return to the BBC One soap?
What is Louise Mitchells exit storyline?
Louise’s exit will come as her husband-to-be Keanu and Sharons secret affair and baby comes exploding out this Christmas.
Phil Mitchell is set to plan his explosive revenge following the reveal, which will see Keanu leaving the Square.
And in a shock twist his fiancee Louise is also set to bow out of the soap in dramatic scenes.
EastEnders fans will know that Louise has almost hit rock bottom in the wake of Mels brutal death by lorry.
The mother-to-be is caught in the middle of a war between Sharon and her mum, who thinks Sharon murdered Mel to keep her baby daddy secret hidden.
And things are only going to get worse for the long-suffering fiancee when her waters break earlier than expected, Peggy momentarily stops breathing and she discovers the truth about love rat Keanu.
Its safe to say its not going to be a merry Christmas chez Mitchell, and Louise will be quick to peg it out of the Square as fast as she can.
However, EastEnders havent confirmed any details of her exit and fans will have to wait to find out whether she leaves with Keanu or makes a sensible dash to splitsville.
