EastEnders has confirmed that Harry Reid is to leave the role of Ben Mitchell.
Reid – who has played the part of Phil Mitchell’s son since 2014 – looks set to get a dramatic ending to his three years in Albert Square.
Speaking tonight, a spokesperson for the soap said: “We can confirm that Harry will be leaving EastEnders. Harry has been a great addition to the cast and we wish him all the best for the future.”
During his time on the soap, Reid has had his share of high-profile storylines, most notably the death of Ben’s lover Paul Coker following an attack by homophobic thugs.
