Hollyoaks star Anna Shaffer has quit her role as Ruby Button, SoapSquawk can confirm.
The actress has been playing the student for nearly three years but wants to move on to other roles.
She has been involved in some of the soap’s top storylines – she lost the love of her life Jono in the bus crash and bullied Esther Bloom so badly she attempted to take her own life.
Fans can still look forward to plenty of action from the Chester resident as she doesn’t leave on screen until early next year.
Insiders say that Bryan Kirkwood wants to make sure she’s given a great exit.
Our mole said: “Ruby has managed to turn her life around and get herself on the straight and narrow.
“That doesn’t mean there’s not going to be any more drama in her life!
“She doesn’t leave for a while yet and that means she’s got plenty of time to get up to some mischief.”
