It comes after Jags Panesar is also set to leave the soap which will involve his cunning mother Suki.
The rent collector, played by actor Amar Adatia, has most recently been seen striking up a secret romance with Habiba and questioning his role in the some-what sketchy family business.
Dramatic exit: EastEnders’ Amar Adatia (Jags Panesar) has revealed that he’s set for a dramatic exit from the soap which will involve his cunning mother Suki (Balvinder Sopal)
Speaking about his exit, Amar said: ‘I can’t share too much about what happens but it serves to further prove just how far Suki will go to get her way!’
‘Jags went against her and being the strong women she is, just like their father in the past, anyone that goes against her doesn’t tend to fare so well.’
Fans have previously suggested that Suki (Balvinder Sopal) had something to do with her husband being sent to prison.
And Suki has already shown she’s not afraid of bold action after faking having cancer to control her children in a previous storyline.
What will she do? The actor said that ‘anyone that goes against Suki doesn’t tend to fare so well’ when hinting about his impending exit (pictured actress Balvinder Sopal)
Amar, whose next film is called R.I.A and also stars Luke Goss, explained how he has already stayed longer than he originally intended too on EastEnders after other commitments got put on hold to the pandemic.
He said: ‘With timings all pushed back, I was more than happy stay a little bit longer to make sure that we wrapped up Jags’ storyline properly.’
The actor also revealed that he’ll be back on the big screen next year in a boxing movie, which he’s got to get fit for.

Secret romance: Jags and Habiba have grown closer during recent episodes but haven’t told anyone about their relationship
Earlier in September it was revealed that Habiba (Rukku Priya Nahar) and Jags’ relationship had heated up during lockdown, with the pair coming dangerously close to being caught in a cosy embrace during one episode.
As Habiba heard her family coming, she forced Jags (played by Amar Adatia) to hide in the bottom of a table, leaving him mortified.
Habiba and Jags also shared a surprise kiss when he opened up about his mum Suki’s lies, as he admitted it made him see his mum in a completely different light.
And Habiba has also been helping to change Jags’ mind on his family, making him question whether he wants to continue as a rent collector for them.

However it doesn’t appear likely that his cunning mother Suki will let her son leave the family business without a struggle.
On Friday’s episode, fans watched as they smooched and held hands, with camera shots and the use of a railing to obscure where they would have made contact.
In the scenes, Martin and Ruby discussed going away after the return of his ex-wife Stacey Slater, shortly before Twitter was flooded with praise.
As they said goodbye, the railing hid their faces as they moved in for a farewell kiss.
Viewers soon flooded to Twitter to praise producers on how they masked the socially distanced scene.
One wrote: ‘Ruby and Martin’s ‘kiss’ in Eastenders today killed me’, while another chimed: ‘They really put a pole in between to make it look like they kissed’.
A third viewer typed: ‘Clever kiss’. ‘Lol Ruby and Martin split screen kiss’, another fan of the show Tweeted.
