Afia & Ben Exit Walford

EastEnders Afia leaves WalfordEastEnders‘ Ben Mitchell and Afia Masood will be leaving Albert Square later in the year. It comes as no surprise to hear Ben (played by Joshua Pascoe) will leave after he is revealed as being Heather’s killer. Whether he ends up behind bars or back in South Africa is not known. More surprisingly, Afia (played by Meryl Fernandes) will finally give up on her troubled marriage to Tamwar and exit Walford next month.

Both actors are yet to announce future projects. Maybe Meryl will go back to her dancing roots – check out the actress in Dannii Minogue’s 2004 video for ‘You Won’t Forget About Me’ (from one minute in):
