EastEnders antiques dealer Anthony Moon is to leave the soap, Digital Spy can confirm.

The shop manager, played by Matt Lapinskas, will depart screens in the coming weeks after less than a year in Walford.

Lapinskas, confirming his exit, commented: "I'm having a fantastic time working on EastEnders and playing the role of Anthony Moon. Working with David Essex, Tony Discipline and the EastEnders cast has been an absolute pleasure.

"Although I will really miss EastEnders and everyone involved, I am very excited about future projects and what is next for me as an actor."

Anthony turned up on Albert Square last July, just a few weeks after his dad Eddie and brother Tyler.

His storylines have included short-lived romances with Poppy Meadow and Amira Shah, as well as a dangerous encounter with the villainous Derek Branning. Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
