Shortly after her final scene, which saw Habiba leave Walford in a taxi despite her sister Iqra pleading with her to stay.

She wrote on Instagram: "BYE BYE HABIBA, thank you @bbceastenders for welcoming me into one of the biggest soaps in the country!

"I've learnt so much in the last two years and I'm grateful to have made friendships for life ❤️ End of a chapter, onto the next one."

Her co-stars left messages of support in the comments as Priya Davdra, who plays her on-screen sister Iqra wrote: "Sis ❤️", while Dotty Cotton star Milly Zero wrote: "Go fly beautiful girl! 🚀"


Already distraught that her boyfriend Jags had been wrongfully sentenced to four years in prison for battering Martin Fowler, Habiba believed the Panesar family, which includes her sister's girlfriend Ash, covered up the truth over Jag's arrest.

Vinny hit Martin over the head but evil mum Suki did the unthinkable and got Jags arrested instead, who played no part in the incident.

That was the last straw as Habiba, nicknamed by her sister as Habs, packed up her things and headed for a cab, but was stopped by a shocked Iqra.

Habiba forced her sister to choose her or Ash, and when Iqra refused to end her relationship, she made her exit from Albert Square, leaving Iqra stunned.


Rukku leaves EastEnders after making her on-screen debut in February 2019 as one of Masood Ahmed's troublesome nieces.

After hearing Masood wanted to give up his part of Walford East before he left, Habiba and Iqra were able to persuade Masood to let them look after his half of the company with their devious tricks.

The actress's biggest storyline saw her character involved in an affair with Honey Mitchell's ex Adam Bateman.

After refusing to believe what was happening for long time, Honey eventually heard Adam admit what he had done, and ended their relationship.
