Anthony makes his exit as his current romance storyline with Alice Branning comes to a head, with the newcomer's father Derek and brother Joey both against the relationship.

Lapinskas told All About Soap: "Poor Anthony - they gave him a relationship with Jodie and she left, then with Poppy and she also left, and then he was with Amira and she left too! Don't get in a relationship with Anthony or you'll have to flee the Square!

"This time, though, it's the other way round - he gets in a relationship with someone and it ends with Anthony leaving."

He continued: "It's a good exit and it's very open for Anthony to come back. With Tyler and the Moon family still around, there's definitely cause for Anthony to return in the future."

Asked whether he would be willing to return, he replied: "Yeah, I'd love to. My contract came to an end and they decided not to renew it - that was their choice, but I'd love to return. I feel like I've got a lot more to give and I'd like to be able to prove myself."

Lapinskas added that he has "a few exciting things coming up" over the next few months.

He said: "It's going to be good - you should see me on screen soon. I'm looking forward to it." Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
