Matt Lapinskas has admitted that he was sad to be written out of EastEnders.

The actor, whose character Anthony Moon departs Albert Square next Thursday, said he would have liked his gambling addiction storyline to deepen further.

"I was quite disappointed when I found out Anthony would be leaving - I'd have liked to do a lot more stuff with him," he told Inside Soap.

"It's a shame not to be a part of what's coming up - I'd have loved to explore Anthony's gambling problem in more depth, made him more of a player."

Lapinskas, whose Walford stay has lasted 13 months, added that he will miss friend and on-screen brother Tony Discipline (Tyler Moon) and girlfriend Shona McGarty (Whitney Dean).

"I've worked with amazing actors and made some great friends," the star gushed. "Tony and I are still best mates. And while I never went in expecting to find love, I met my girlfriend Shona there." Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
