However, her agents AIM released a statement today saying: "June Brown is taking a break from EastEnders as she has done before.

"She will be completing her autobiography, and intends to return to EastEnders in the not-too-distant future."

Her alter ego Dot will make her temporary exit later this week following her struggle to move on from the death of Heather Trott.

A string of fellow EastEnders cast members, including Charlie Brooks (Janine), Jo Joyner (Tanya) and Patsy Palmer (Bianca), have recently announced they will be taking hiatuses. Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
