Danielle Harold is leaving EastEnders.

The 23-year-old actress - who plays the young mother Lola Pierce - has been written out of story lines on the popular BBC One soap opera and admitted "I'll miss everyone."

She said: "I've had the most amazing time at EastEnders having been involved in some exciting story lines, including giving birth in a live scene."

The TV babe first joined the soap four years ago as Billie Mitchel's loud-mouthed but lovable teenage granddaughter. Before entering in to acting, the young star was featured on the television series Jamie's Dream School in 2011.

She added: "I'll miss everyone here and am looking forward to the future."

However a come-back for Lola has not been ruled out, as

Eastender's producer Dominic Treadwell-Collins said: "We all love Danielle and she and Lola have been a big part of EastEnders over the past four years.

He added: "Danielle is a fantastic actress and I genuinely look forward to seeing her shine in future roles away from Square."

Danielle will film her final scenes this year.
