Viewers know Luke is in a relationship with Victoria Sugden.

His brother Lee brutally raped Victoria and later he was killed after Robert Sugden hit him with a shovel.

However it emerged last week that on the day of the attack, Lee was knocked unconscious by Luke - meaning he could be responsible for Lee’s death and not Robert.

It has paved the way for Robert (Ryan Hawley) to return but either way Luke will be leaving.

A source said: “Max was never going to stay on the soap for years.

“He’s ambitious and a talented guy - he’s already auditioning for new roles and excited for the future.

“But never say never - there’s always a chance he could return one day.”

The star also met his boyfriend on the soap. The Sun exclusively revealed how he and on-screen brother Kris Mochrie began dating after meeting on the soap.

All this week’s episodes of the ITV soap are available to watch now on the channel’s streaming service.

The soap will still broadcast on ITV’s main channel, but this way fans won’t be disappointed with the schedule changes due to the Euro 2021 football tournament.
