Gurlaine made it clear she could be leaving Albert Square when she shared new snapshots on her Instagram account.

At the time, the 29-year-old simply claimed she was "Excited for what’s to come", but gave no further details.

However, she confirmed she signed with New York talent agency Framework Entertainment through this same post.
