WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD

Frans of the Butcher family will be saddened to hear that young cast members Maisie Smith and Devon Higgs will be leaving the show.

The child actors, who play Tiffany and Morgan Butcher, will leave the show this autumn alongside their on-screen mother Patsy Palmer (Bianca), who announced her decision to leave EastEnders in April.

Maisie and Devon have been in the show for six years and, while show bosses will be sad to see them go, it is impossible for Bianca to leave Albert Square without her youngest children.

The headstrong mum would never disappear without her babies, after all.

But will they all be heading off for a happy-ever-after with Bianca's on-and-off-again boyfriend Terry Spraggan (Terry Alderton), who is also leaving the soap with his own children TJ and Rosie?

EastEnders producers are going to keep us guessing on that front, it seems.

An EastEnders spokesperson told Digital Spy: "We don't comment on storylines as we don't want to ruin it for the fans. However, we can confirm that the characters Bianca, Tiffany, Morgan, Terry, TJ and Rosie will be leaving the show later this year."

PICTURE: MEET THE NEW BEN MITCHELL - BUT DID HE KILL LUCY BEALE?

However, while most of the Butcher family is leaving, Bianca's eldest son Liam (James Forde) and stepdaughter Whitney (Shona McGarty) will remain in the show.

With Whitney in the spotlight for Lucy Beale's murder - not to mention set to embark upon a relationship with fellow suspect Lee Carter - we imagine her storyline is only going to get more interesting without Bianca there to help her….

Will you be sad to see Tiffany and Morgan leave EastEnders?
