Is Jags leaving EastEnders and why?

Jags Panesar (Amar Adatia) has found himself at odds with his mother in EastEnders of late, a very dangerous position to be in for anyone that knows the character of Suki (Balvinder Sopal) well.

After initially being in the shadow of his mother and older brothers, Jags has become to open up more and be more vocal with his opinions.

From wanting to be more open about his relationship with with Habiba Ahmed (Rukku Nahar) to questioning the work his mother has him doing, Jags is finally speaking out and sticking up for himself.

But with Suki not one to be messed with and Jags quickly becoming a perceived thorn in her side, how far will she do to rid the family of Jags and will that mean the character is leaving Albert Square?

Is Jags leaving EastEnders?

Jags Panesar is indeed leaving EastEnders and the character is due to depart this month, as actor Amar Adatia has confirmed he has filmed his final scenes on the BBC soap.

While the exact nature of his departure is being kept a secret until the episode airs, we do know that Jags will exit EastEnders in dramatic scenes and that the associated storyline will have far reaching consequences.

Talking about leaving EastEnders for good actor Amar told Metro.co.uk: ‘ I always knew I’d only be in the show for a set period of time when I signed up. I had just finished shooting a film and had prior commitments to promote that but then the pandemic hit and everything understandably got put on hold.

‘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. I was really lucky to have those extra months of filming and to spend time with everyone on set before I said goodbye.

‘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!’

EastEnders continues tonight, Monday October 5, at 8.05pm on BBC One.
