Show bosses have not been forthcoming about Browning's exit storyline, however fans will hope the twisted character will get his comeuppance for his crimes.

Thompson is leaving the soap to pursue other acting opportunities, it has been reported.

His role developed last summer when his feelings for Mercedes led him to killing Lynsey.
