Samantha Womack who plays Ronnie Branning had voiced her concern over the scenes in which her new baby dies and she steals Kat and Alfie Moon's child.
Her pleas to rethink the story apparently fell on deaf ears and now the BBC have received 3000 complaints about the storyline.
She has now announced that she will leave the soap in May. Sources close to Samantha say that she found filming unbearable and was very concerned about the impact the scenes would have on mothers who had lost children to cot death.
What do you think of the EastEnders storyline - have they taken it too far this time?
