Is Jane Beale leaving EastEnders for good? Soap fans get upset over shock exit [Wenn]
Following a dramatic confrontation with Max Branning on Eastenders, character Jane Beale decided to jump in a famous black cab and leave Albert Square for good.
But is Jane Beale leaving EastEnders for good? Fans of the BBC soap are desperate to know whether Ian Beale’s wife will ever make another return. Especially as her exit wasn’t as dramatic as expected.
Disappointed with how actress Laurie Brett left, fans jumped on Twitter to complain.
One wrote: “Seriously Jane just leaves like that? I don’t buy it, give it 6 months and I think she will back. All the good ones are going 🙁 #EastEnders.”

Agreeing, another wrote: “Why didn’t they kill off Jane in the flipping fire, that would have being better than this s**t ending #eastenders.”
But what fans REALLY want to know is if Jane Beale will return to EastEnders?
Unfortunately, it seems like a no as both the BBC producers and Laurie herself have admitted her character has come full circle.
The 48 year old star told Digital Spy that while her role on the soap, which started in 2004, was a “huge gift”, she won’t be quick to make a comeback.

She said: “What I have known from the start is that with the soap gods watching us at all times, there is only so long before things go full circle.”
Fans and watchers have come to terms with this meaning there will be no more Jane Beale on EastEnders.
Last time Laurie took a break from EastEnders, she filmed scenes for Waterloo Road as well as a short anniversary tribute film to Neighbours.
Her last scenes on the soap saw Max Branning threatening to kill her husband Ian Beale after he discovered a telling voicemail.

Jane then made a desperate phone call to Stacey Fowler, played by Lacey Turner to reveal all, however, due to her stolen phone, the conversation was never had.
And therefore Jane was forced out of the Square for good, but not before leaving a chilling voicemail to Ian.
