Louisa Lytton has revealed she’s finished filming as Ruby Allen in EastEnders ahead of the arrival of her first baby.

Back in March, Louisa announced on her Instagram that she’s expecting her first child with fiancé Ben Bhanvra.

On Monday (July 26), Louisa uploaded some videos to her Instagram Story and revealed she had left the BBC One soap to start her maternity leave.

‘I’ve finally finished work, which is so surreal. I’ve been told it’s my time to switch off and relax’ she said.

Louisa regularly posts pictures on her Instagram updating fans of her pregnancy progress and how her and Ben are getting on preparing for their baby.

She recently posted a picture of Ben painting, captioning the picture ‘Nursery pending’.

Over in EastEnders, Ruby is dealing with her recent endometriosis diagnosis and will head to hospital in upcoming episodes for an operation.

After lying about Stacey (Lacey Turner) pushing her down the stairs, Ruby is also hiding the fact that her oldest friend shouldn’t be in prison.

With Ruby’s final scenes looming, what will her exit storyline be?
