Kierston Wareing wanted to leave 'EastEnders' because her storylines were "one dimensional".

The 37-year-old actress is pleased BBC One bosses decided to end her contract after just a year because she was getting sick of playing barmaid Kirsty Branning.

She said: "I think her storylines have been quite one dimensional - she's either working in the pub or chasing husband Max. At the beginning it was great as there were loads of sides to Kirsty but although I've enjoyed my time there, I have a range and they didn't use it. It was quite frustrating."

However, the brunette beauty admits she would have stayed working on Albert Square if producers had offered her the right pay check because she was afraid she'd regret her decision if she'd have quit on her own accord.

She explained: "I would have stayed longer for the money, but I wasn't that happy with my storylines. I've had a great time working on the show but, ultimately, I'm glad producers made the decision [for me to leave] because then it's out of my control. Otherwise, I might have kicked myself later.

Meanwhile, Kierston can next be seen in new series 'The Bible', which will see her play Deliah.

Speaking to The Sun newspaper, she said: "It's very different for me and I'm so grateful. I never thought I'd something biblical, but it was great because she's a baddie. She's seductive, devious and greedy - I think we have all met a Deliah."
