NICOLETTE Sheridan is to leave her role in US drama series Desperate Housewives, according to US network ABC.

The 45-year-old, who was born in the UK, is renowned for playing temptress troublemaker Edie Britt on the long-running show, but no details have yet been revealed of when or how the star will exit the series.

At the end of a previous season, Britt left temporarily only to return when the show moved forward five years.

Prior to landing the role of Edie on Desperate Housewives in 2004, Sheridan was best known for her performance in another long-running US soap, Knots Landing, in the ’90s.

Until last year she was also engaged to singer Michael Bolton, but they announced their split in August.
