Another EastEnders exit has been confirmed as love cheat Adam Bateman (Stephen Rahman-Hughes) will be written out as the truth about his affair with Habiba Ahmed (Rukku Nahar) is exposed, leaving Honey Mitchell (Emma Barton) distraught.

The sleazy dentist has been carrying on with Habiba and its clear that Honey has been savvy to his wily ways – but she has tried to block out the betrayal. However, it will soon become too much as Honey confronts him over his betrayal.

This will lead to his exposure as a love rat, prompting a departure from the soap, which confirms that his ending is a natural conclusion for the character.

A recent trailer showed Honey confronting Habiba over the affair and it means that the end is nigh for Adam.

A source told The Daily Star: Producers have ­decided its the end of the road for Adam. It was decided to write the character out. His turbulent relationship with Honey Mitchell has kept viewers hooked. But once his cheating is exposed, the storyline comes to a natural end, so bosses decided not to renew Stephens contract.
