Maddy Hill has left 'EastEnders' after it felt like the "right time" to move on.

The 32-year-old actress bowed out of the BBC One soap in Thursday night's (23.06.22) episode when her character Nancy Carter moved to Manchester after her boyfriend Zack Hudson (James Farrar) cheated on her with Sam Mitchell (Kim Medcalf) earlier in the week.

Maddy told Digital Spy: "It's been great revisiting Nancy and the Square over the past year but it felt like the right time to move on for now.

"I already miss everyone and feel so grateful to work with people I have so much love for."

A BBC spokesperson said: "We wish Maddy all the very best for the future."

Nancy moving out of Walford also comes after she has been struggling with her mum Linda Carter's (Kellie Bright) battle with alcoholism.

Maddy first appeared as Nancy in 2014 before departing the role in 2016, after which the actress then starred in 'Father Brown', and she played Ruby Spark in 'Casualty' for two years.

But Maddy returned to Albert Square last year to take on the role of Nancy again.

The actress revealed in February 2021 that she was returning to Walford.

She said at the time: "I’m so excited to be coming back and reconnecting with all the hilarious, warm, talented cast and crew and meeting some lovely new faces.

"I absolutely loved playing Nancy and have often wondered what she's up to, so feel very grateful to be able to rediscover her five years on."
