Lorraine Newman - EastEnders executive producer
EastEnders' former series story producer Dominic Treadwell-Collins will be taking over as executive producer.
Revealing her decision, Newman said today (July 29): "I have loved every moment of my time at EastEnders, but it is finally time to leave Walford.
"Over the past 23 years, I have been involved in some of the best moments on British television, from 'Who Shot Phil?', to 'You Ain't My Mother!', to the 25th live anniversary episode and in the past year, the Olympic Torch episode has also been a proud highlight.
"Over the past year, I have also had the pleasure of planning and implementing the revival of many of the EastEnders clans who should always be at the heart of the show. I am confident that I am leaving the show in a stronger place and am sure that Dominic will continue to build upon this, taking the show to a new level.
"I am delighted to be joining BBC Drama Production as an executive producer and look forward to the new opportunities and projects this will bring."
