Johnny Carter will tell his family that he’s been offered a new job away from London in next week’s episodes of EastEnders.


The announcement looks set to mark the start of actor Ted Reilly’s exit from the BBC1 soap after nearly two years in the role of Johnny.

The announcement that the EastEnders star was leaving broke in December last year, with Reilly commenting on Twitter:

“It was a really tough decision to leave, but at this stage in my career, it’s very important to keep challenged and to experience new things.

“I’ll miss the amazing people on the Square, especially my Carter clan!”

EastEnders is currently keeping tight-lipped as to whether Johnny decides to take the new job.

However, next week’s drama will certainly put the Carters in the spotlight as Mick makes a last-ditch attempt to save his beloved Queen Vic and find the money to buy back the pub’s freehold.
