Digital Spy reports that actress Bunmi Mojekwu who plays Mercy Olubunmi in the BBC 1 soap Eastenders, will be written out of the hit show later this year.
EastEnders bosses have today confirmed that Mercy Olubunmi will be leaving Albert Square later this year.
The Walford student, played by actress Bunmi Mojekwu, will bow out on-screen in the summer after a year as a regular cast member on the show.
Mercy is currently caught up in an immigration drama after the UK Border Agency threatened to deport her for outstaying her visa.
I wondered how long it would be before they decided to write the character out of the show. The ridiculous immigration storyline signalled the end for the actress who plays her.
I remember when the Eastenders team initially announced that the character of Mercy who was first seen in Eastenders online spin off Eastenders: E20, had not been chosen to make the transition from the online drama to the main show (the only leading cast member to be excluded ).

Anyway I wish you the best of luck for the future Bunmi.
