Adam Woodyatt explained why he left Eastenders

“I just had another opportunity, there was this play came up and I just fancied doing something different,” he told Frankie Bridge.

He then revealed the show's bosses had wanted his character to take a pause, which he saw as a chance to leave.

“The way the storyline went, they needed me to take a break and the breaks just got longer.”

Paralympic champion Kadeena Cox then queried Adam on whether or not he'd fancy trying his hand at film acting.

“I'm available as of April,” the star joked.
