93-year-old icon June Brown is set to leave EastEnders after 35 years as the much-loved Dot Cotton.
The actress, who joined the show in 1985, said 'I've left for good" in an interview with podcast Distinct Nostalgia.
June said: "It’s almost as if I’ve been bereaved. I don’t want a retainer for EastEnders, I’ve left. I’ve left for good."
She added: "I went back to do a good story. Alas and alack, when I got back it had gone up in smoke. I got a small part, a very small part. And that ended up as a big wet fart. Alas and alack, I will never go back."
An EastEnders spokesman said the 'door remains open' for June to make a return to the BBC soap.
