EastEnders: is Buster set to leave?

Mick and Lee catch Buster packing his bags next week after his relationship with Shirley comes under threat


Is Buster Briggs (Karl Howman) about to call time on his relationship with Shirley Carter (Linda Henry) and leave the Square?


It certainly looks that way when, in next week’s episodes, he decides to pack his bags after that romance with Shirl hits the rocks.

Scenes to be broadcast on Monday 8 February see Mick (Danny Dyer) and Lee (Danny-Boy Hatchard) finding Buster zipping up his suitcases.

After doing their best to convince Buster not to leave by reminding him how much he has to stick around for, Shirley soon arrives and has her own say. Can anyone convince Buster to change his mind?

Ex-convict Buster has been a part of Walford life since he moved in to 18-20 Albert Square back in April 2015. But is his time in E20 now about to come to an end?
