Whether the couple's wedding goes ahead before Mandy makes her surprise exit is currently unknown.

Nicola Stapleton, who plays Mandy, returned to EastEnders last summer after 17 years away from the soap.

Confirming her departure, Stapleton commented: "I've had a great time at EastEnders, working with friends old and new. Who knows whether Mandy will return? Let's hope it doesn't take another 17 years!"

A Walford source added: "EastEnders bosses kept Nicola on for longer than expected as they are building up to a big storyline for Ian."

Mandy embarked on a relationship with Ian (Adam Woodyatt) soon after returning to the Square last year, but the pair have had a rocky romance with various disputes and rows.

Most recently, Ian doubted Mandy when her mum Lorraine (Victoria Alcock) warned that she would break his heart. Ian's daughter Lucy (Hetti Bywater) has also been keen to split the couple up.
