Sapphire Elia will leave 'Emmerdale' in October.
The 24-year-old actress - who has played Mia Macey in the ITV1 soap since last November - has revealed she will depart the show later this year although there is a possibility she could return.
She wrote on her twitter page: "The explosion of this summer's storyline will result in my character's departure but with the doors open for her return.
"I'll be on your screens right up until roughly October so keep peeled for more Mia!
"In four months' time it's onwards and upwards. I'll keep you posted on what's to come."
Saphhire's departure comes after her character's mother Ella has a steamy affair with her boyfriend Adam Barton and Ryan Thomas - who plays the philanderer - recently revealed he loved filming scenes for the illicit fling.
He said: "I'm having a ball. It's nice to have a good storyline to get your teeth into. When I got the script, I was like, 'Wow!'. I was really excited."
"You dread the kissing scenes but, when it comes down to it, it's not as bad as you think. You just get on with it. It's not just kissing scenes, either. We have sex over a desk! I've just been shooting scenes where Moira finds out and I think it's going to get very messy."
