Gary - who has been a regular in Albert Square since September 2012 - took to Twitter to thank fans for their support - and hinted he may return to the soap in the future.

He tweeted: "Thank you for your messages loved my time @Ee interesting character with lots of scope see u later rather than good bye ;-) ps more 2 come x"

Earlier this month, the actor spoke out following negative comments on Twitter about his on-screen kiss with newcomer Johnny Carter (Sam Strike).

"Reaction was, on the most part, positive. There were a few on Twitter still living in the dark ages but on the whole, people were okay," he said.

"I got one message on the internet from a guy saying, 'Thanks for that storyline because it gave me the courage to come out and tell my parents'. If you can do that, you as an actor and the show has done its job."
