Tameka Empson, who has played Kim Fox for 10 years, is taking a break from EastEnders.

Next week viewers will see Kim tell her sister Denise about her plans to move away.

The mum-of-two will reveal she's heading to Scotland for a new job after constantly arguing with Denise in their salon Fox & Hair.

The two sisters put their differences aside and will part ways on good terms after a turbulent few months.

This will leave the door open for a return for Kim.

A spokesperson has revealed that actress Tameka will be back at some point in the future, although they haven't said how long she’ll be away.

Back in 2014, Kim married Vincent Hubbard and soon got pregnant.

Her and Vincent's daughter Pearl was born two months prematurely in 2015.

Kim got pregnant with their second baby but Vincent disappeared in April 2018 after Phil Mitchell arranged for him to be scared off by some thugs.

He was last seen in the back of a car with a group of men and no one has seen him since.

Later in 2018, she gave birth to her second baby assisted by Phil, in the storeroom of the Minute Mart.
