His shirtless shower scenes have been sending EastEnders viewers into meltdown since he arrived on the Square in March.But after just four months at the dark heart of the soap’s most sinister-developing plot line, Jack Derges is packing up his abs and quitting the show.
Walford’s hottest hunk is filming his final scenes as unhinged builder Andy Flynn before he swaps Albert Square for the West End. In September, Jack will star in a brand new role as a gay hustler called Cowboy in hit Broadway show The Boys In The Band when it makes its revival in London.
An EastEnders insider said: “When Andy arrived, viewers didn’t realise he was hiding a dark secret, but over the past few weeks it has become clear his intentions towards Ronnie and her family are not what they seem.
“Andy was only ever going to be in EastEnders for this story line, but it’s fair to say there is lots more drama to come before Andy leaves Walford.”
