EastEnders spoiler: Steven Beale star drops MAJOR hint about character's exit

EastEnders spoiler: Steven Beale star drops MAJOR hint about character's exit”

The character returned to Albert Square last year, after an eight-year absence, but actor Aaron Sidwell has now confirmed that he's stepping down from the soap.

EastEnders has revealed that Aaron Sidwell is leaving the show with "explosive scenes" planned.

Departing EastEnders star Aaron Sidwell has promised fans that there's danger ahead as the storyline involving his character Steven Beale reaches its conclusion.

On today's Lorraine show, he told stand-in host Christine Lampard of his pain as she said: "Here you are playing this role, pretending to have brain cancer, but in real life one of your really good friends was dealing with the disease and sadly lost his life a week ago - that must have been a awful period for you?"

Talking about Steven and Max's storyline, Sidwell said: "That's a great dynamic that's not fully come into play yet, and Steven's very much been the manipulator and now he is becoming manipulated".

With Max already scheming against Steven and his bride-to-be Lauren Branning (Jacqueline Jossa), will this complicated situation end in disaster for Steven?

He explained: 'It was very tough personally, but this is part of what we do, and you can't always do the stories you want to do.

"The hard thing to portray convincingly is, you have to rationalise it in your head because he will be able to rationalise it".

His first post-'EastEnders" part has also already been revealed, as he's set to star as the male lead, Fiyero, in a new production of "Wicked' which is set to tour the United Kingdom in 2018. "He has a reason that he's doing it", he explained of his character Steven.

Yet ever the professional, the Kent-born star added: "It's such a big thing, but it's a thing people do unfortunately, and our job is to show them in real life as unusual as it is".

When news of the 28-year-old star's exit from EastEnders was confirmed on Thursday he took to Twitter to dismiss reports that he was quitting the soap over the storyline. "I love EastEnders and everyone connected to the show with all my heart".

But according to reports, Aaron is the mystery cast member bowing out in scenes to air later this year.
