Patrick Dempsey has reportedly confirmed he is leaving Grey's Anatomy.
The Enchanted star - known for playing Derek Shepherd aka Dr McDreamy in the medical show - told Italian Vanity Fair the forthcoming eighth season of the long-running drama will be his last.
"I do not know what's going to happen to the other characters," he told the magazine, "but for me it's done".
Patrick, who stars as Ellen Pompeo's on-screen husband, said leaving the series after seven years would be "bittersweet because it's been great and a great part of my life. But I can't see me doing it anymore."
The 45-year-old actor will next appear on the big screen in Michael Bay's Transformers sequel, Transformers: Dark of the Moon.
