Gregory Fitoussi has quit his role as Henri Leclarie in the popular drama 'Mr Selfridge'.

The hunky Frenchman, who plays the creative director in the hit ITV period drama has revealed he will leave the show in the series finale.

ITV bosses have hopes that won't be the last time that he will be seen in Selfridge. Show executives are keen to persuade Fitoussi to return at some point during its next run.

A source said: “Henri will be seen leaving the store in the finale episode of the first series. Show bosses really want him to return.”

'Mr Selfridge' has already been commissioned for a second series and filming will begin later this year.

Meanwhile, Aisling Lofts who plays shop assistant Agnes Towler has been discussing her kiss scene with Fitoussi.

She told the Sun newspaper: “When I told my friends about the kiss they were all sick with jealousy. Gregory is gorgeous. And he's as gorgeous in person as he looks- he isn't a dirty dog like you might expect of someone that attractive.”

When we filmed the scene I was so was nerve-racking at first, and then fine. And Gregory was such a gentleman.”

The series finale of 'Mr Selfridge' is to air on Sunday, March 10th on ITV.

Are you glad to see Henri leave?

- Mr. Selfridge

I just began watching the past episodes and have fallen in love with Henri and Agnus. They are so good together. Henri is magnanamus as a man, but watching him as he looks at Agnus is so loving and pure like I haven't seen such a depth. It has renewed my hope in love and I love the authenticity of the era, costumes and the knowledge of how things were done, history lesson. Please keep Henri..he is why I want to watch now. He is the epitomy of a fine gentleman, the hat, coat and gloves, his finesse and the way he put the scarf on Agnus. It "felt" like real love. Do not let him go!!! He is sexy as hell, and it isn't just his looks, he has a flavor of something special and different, wish he were mine.

NOO....Please don't go. We, the hopeful romantics of the world, really need you to come back into Agnes's life. Henri is one of my favorite characters in this show. I think the cast of this show is wonderful in every way.

Oh, I do hope he returns. He and Ainsley Loftus make such a dear couple. I envied her kiss with Gregory. Such a hunk, and such a gentleman. Ooooh....what a lucky lady Ainsley is.

What a hunk, this man is drop dead gorgeous, and the show will not be the same without him. I hope they can get him to change his mind.
