Zoe Tapper confirms Mr. Selfridge exit

Zoe Tapper will not return to 'Mr. Selfridge'.

The actress has confirmed her character, showgirl-turned-serious actress Ellen Love, will not appear in the second series of the TV drama, following the season one finale on Sunday (10.03.13).

She tweeted: ''This is me bidding Ellen Love a fond farewell. It was a blast.

''No not back for series 2. Ellen was only ever a one series gal x. (sic)''

Zoe paid a visit to Selfridges yesterday (11.03.13), the iconic London department store where the drama is set, and admitted it felt strange to be at the location.

She tweeted:''Feels a bit odd walking through @Selfridges today. Not sure if I should be here....(sic)''

Zoe's character was a love interest for Jeremy Piven's alter ego Harry Selfridge throughout the first series. However, after he spurned her advances, Ellen - who suffered a breakdown and attempted suicide after their affair ended - got her revenge in the finale by taking part in a theatre production that mocked the US businessman.

'Mr. Selfridge' will return to ITV in 2014, with the story moved forward to 1914 and the lead-up to World War 1.
