Two of EastEnders biggest stars are leaving the soap in a massive shake-up.
Marc Elliot, 32, and John Partridge, 40, who play gay lovers Syed Masood and Christian Clarke, are being written out.
The pair, dubbed Chryed by viewers, have a devoted following with dozens of fan sites.
They will make their exit in November in an explosive storyline that bosses are keeping under wraps.
Executive producer Lorraine Newman said: “Marc and John have been a fantastic part of the show and their characters have been a huge success.
