He was never going to stay in EastEnders forever. He’s loved playing Bobby but he became an actor to play all kinds of roles and he wants to do that." A BBC spokesperson told OK: "We can confirm that Clay will be leaving EastEnders later on this year, and we wish him the best for the future.” Clay was the fifth actor to take on the role and he took over the part from Eliot Carrington who played Bobby from 2014 to 2017.

Eliot had a major storyline during his time at EastEnders which was the big 'whodunnit' after Lucy Beale's murder in 2015. After being caught and doing time in prison - in which time Clay took over the role, Bobby since has redeemed himself and has had storyline such as suicide attempts, converting to Islam, developing and struggling with OCD and entering a relationship with Dana Monroe (Barbara Smith).
