It comes after Ricky, who plays Stuart Highway on the BBC soap, has been confirmed as one of five cast members to be written out of the show.

Stuart is currently at the centre of a father’s post-natal depression storyline, with the character struggling to bond with his baby Roland.

He has struggled with his mental health after his diagnosis with breast cancer and he is having trouble adjusting to parenthood after he and wife Rainie (Tanya Franks) tried for a child for a long time.

The couple revealed they were having their second child earlier this year when Ricky posted an ultrasound pic resting by a punch of flowers and a wooden sign reading: 'Baby Champ. Due July 2022.'

Ricky first set foot in Albert Square back in 2018 and has landed a spell of intense storylines, including confessing to accidentally killing DI Steve Thompson (Philip Wright) – who later turned out be alive.  

He also admitted to being a vigilante paedophile hunter which stemmed from being sexually abused as a child.

The actor’s additional ventures include his role as Paul Parker in the BBC Three sitcom Him & Her and a Games Of Thrones appearance as Gatins.

Ricky will film his final scenes as Stuart later this year, according to the Metro.
