Hollyoaks star Anna Shaffer has quit the teen saga after three years in the role of Ruby Button.
Shaffer will bow out from the role early next year in order to pursue other acting opportunities.
Tearaway Ruby has been at the centre of some of Hollyoaks biggest plots in recent times.
Ruby’s fiancé Jono (Dylan Llewellyn) died in last year’s bus crash and Ruby subsequently became embroiled in the bullying of Esther Bloom (Jazmine Franks) leading to the teen attempting to take her own life.
“Ruby has managed to turn her life around and get herself on the straight and narrow [but] that doesn’t mean there’s not going to be any more drama in her life!
“She doesn’t leave for a while yet and that means she’s got plenty of time to get up to some mischief.” – Hollyoaks source
