EastEnders’ Keegan star Zack Morris says emotional goodbye to BBC soap and co-stars

EastEnders’ actor Zack Morris has broken his silence on his BBC soap exit, as he said an emotional goodbye to his Albert Square alter-ego Keegan Butcher Baker.

Taking to Instagram after the emotional scenes aired, the 23 year old star penned an emotional tribute to his character and co-stars.

He also reflected on how much the show had changed his life and why he would always be thankful to soap bosses for taking a chance on him.

Posting a series of snaps from his time on the soap, including with his on-screen family, Zack wrote: “And with that, it’s over and out from me…Playing Keegan Baker has been the most amazing experience I could of ever asked for.

“It’s almost impossible to put into words how much this show means to me. EastEnders gave me a fresh start in life, in a time where I was screaming for one.

“They believed in me from day one and gave me the chance I needed to show the world and myself that I’m here to stay and that dreams really can come true.”

Zack also opened up on his time on the iconic Albert Square set, giving a special shout out to his castmates and the hardworking crew behind the scenes.

He continued: “I always strived to work as hard as I could for the show, but my hard work doesn’t mean anything without the production team, the cast and crew.
