Hollyoaks star James Sutton has quit his role as John Paul McQueen.
And it’s not good news for the show’s fans as it seems the popular character is going to be killed off as new reports claim John Paul plunges to his death after driving off a cliff.
James has played the role of John Paul since 2006 and tackled some of the soap’s biggest storylines including rape and gay marriage.
A show insider told the Sun: “James is a soap legend and will be sorely missed by Hollyoaks cast, crew and viewers.
“Producers have given him a huge, dramatic exit – so it’s going to be the perfect way to see off almost a decade of John Paul on our screens.
“In gut-wrenching scenes filmed in north Wales before Christmas, John Paul will be shown driving off the edge of a cliff in his car. Show chiefs aren’t necessarily saying his exit is for good and they are leaving the door open.
“But for now this is the last people will see of John Paul for the foreseeable future.”
