Amber Riley is going to 'miss the whole Glee family' as she leaves the hit musical TV show, she has revealed.
The 26-year-old actress took to her Twitter account yesterday to announce her Glee departure, telling fans: 'That's a wrap on Amber Riley! Just closed a chapter in my life, the only thing I've known day in and day out for three years.
'I'm going to miss the whole Glee family, seeing them everyday,' she wrote.
'Stay tuned to see what's next for Mercedes.'
Amber's co-star Dianna Agron is also rumoured to be leaving the show as her character graduates from McKinley High.
Harry Shum Jr., who plays dancer Mike, said filming the final scenes of the third season has been very emotional for the cast.
'There [are] a lot of tears on set, randomly. We had a rehearsal and even our choreographer had some tears,' he told ET. 'He couldn't even get through the rehearsal...We've been through a long journey.'
