In the wake of her conviction for a racially-aggravated assault, the makers of Misfits have confirmed that Lauren Socha will not be returning as Kelly Bailey for the fourth series of the E4 show.

A spokesperson for Clerkenwell Films told Digital Spy: “Clerkenwell Films and Lauren Socha agreed some time ago that along with other cast members, including Iwan Rheon and Antonia Thomas, she would not be returning for the fourth series of Misfits, which is currently in production. Channel 4 supports both parties’ decisions.”
