“I had to say goodbye to some of the best people I ever wanted to meet.
“It was difficult not being able to get the usual hugs, although it’s probably for the best as I may not have let go.
“I am a very happy boy. Many thanks to those who made the 6 ½ years so special.
“You know who you are. The picture could even subtly suggest who one of them is … thanks for the ride #Eastenders #Kush”
Why was Davood Ghadami deleted from EastEnders?
Bosses have been planning an explosive exit for Kush in the coming months.
An insider said metro Last year: “Bosses have planned a huge conspiracy, but although Davood was informed in January, it was not that long ago that he left.
“In fact, Kush will be on screen well into 2021.
“It’s a shame and he will be missed by everyone at Elstree, but sometimes the cost of a big storyline means losing great characters.”
