Why did Richard Blackwood leave EastEnders?

Opening up about his EastEnders departure during an interview with So Solid Crew's Harvey, Richard said: "There was no bad vibe between me and EastEnders [about] leaving. It just so happened that I came to the end of my contract and they weren't going to renew it."

The actor, who played Vincent Hubbard, admitted he wasn't happy about leaving and felt a little hurt about the producers' decision to say goodbye to his character.

However, he insisted he always knew he would only be on the show for three years: "When I came into EastEnders… I said if I get more than one year, I reckon I'm going to do three years… EastEnders is its [own] movie, I'm a character within it… My character within that movie had to leave."
