The 60 year old has played fashion magnate Ridge Forrester since the show began in 1987, but he has decided to leave the series.

A representative for production company Bell Phillip Television states, "Ronn has spent an amazing 25 years with B&B. We will always consider him family, and we wish him only the best in all of his future endeavors."

Moss will film his final scenes for the program on Tuesday, with his last episode airing next month.
