    Emmerdale's Matthew Wolfenden, who plays David Metcalfe, is leaving the soap.

    The TV favourite has been in the village since 2006 but it's now said that he'll be leaving the Yorkshire set for pastures new after feeling "ready for a change".

    Matthew, 43, has told friends that he's "bored" with the plotlines he's been having in recent months.

    A TV source told The Sun that he wants to "see what else is out there" after "not getting any gritty storylines".

    They added: "He's excited about the opportunities available. He's only just announced he is leaving so scriptwriters are working out his on-screen exit. It's possible David could be killed off."

    He has faced some challenging storylines in his history on the soap, but he's ready for his last one as he prepares to exit.
