Nicholls's character will depart in a dramatic storyline in the drama's sixth episode when the show returns later this year.

"There are no plans for him to return," an insider said.

A spokesman for Law & Order: UK confirmed that the actor would leave the production in the spring.

"Due to other work commitments, Paul Nicholls was only ever available to film the first six episodes of Law & Order: UK series seven," the spokesman explained.

Nicholls joined Law & Order: UK soon after being axed from the BBC's Waterloo Road due to alleged "erratic behaviour".

Law & Order: UK was renewed for a seventh series by ITV back in August.
