The circumstances surrounding Tanya's (Jo Joyner) upcoming departure from EastEnders have been revealed.

Warning: spoiler alert!

Digital Spy reports that Tanya's exit will come after she blames herself for alcoholic daughter Lauren (Jacqueline Jossa).

Next week viewers will see Lauren rushed to hospital, with doctors revealing that her liver is severely damaged and more drink could kill her.

However, when she returns to Albert Square Lauren continues drinking and later accuses her mother of ruining her life.

Viewers will then see Tanya packing her suitcase.

The scenes will air on BBC One and RTÉ One on Thursday June 27 and Friday June 28.
