Ingo Rademacher (Thorne) has announced his exit from The Bold and the Beautiful on Instagram. “I have decided to not continue with my contract on The Bold and the Beautiful and I’ll be finishing up my last episodes in January.” The actor, who previously played General Hospital’s Jax, also stated that his parting with the CBS soap is on good terms and that he’s open to reprising the role.

Rademacher took over the role of Thorne Forrester in November 2017, taking over from Winsor Harmon.

This week on The Bold and the Beautiful: Liam (Scott Clifton) and Hope (Annika Noelle) make a significant request of Maya (Karla Mosley) on Monday (December 24). Reese (Wayne Brady) must keep his cool while trying to avoid a mysterious stranger at Il Giardino.

The Forresters, Logans, Avants and Spectras spend Christmas Eve together on Tuesday (December 25) at the Forrester Estate. The family celebrates baby Kelly’s first Christmas. Hope and Liam announce the name they will give their daughter. The Logan sisters save Pam (Alley Mills) and Charlie’s (Dick Christie) Christmas dinner. At Ridge’s (Thorsten Kaye) request, each person expresses their blessings to one another. With hearts full of love and gratitude, Xander (Aidan Bradley) carries on a Forrester tradition and Eric (John McCook) reminds everyone of the true meaning of Christmas.

On Wednesday (December 26), Ridge gives Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) a present to give to Taylor (Hunter Tylo) as they sort through baby Kelly’s first Christmas gifts. Hope surprises Liam with a “babymoon” vacation on Catalina Island.

A mysterious stranger from Reese’s past makes a serious threat to Zoe (Kiara Barnes) safety on Thursday (December 27). Separated from Liam who went to check on baby Kelly, Hope arrives at the airport where she meets Matt and Kieran (Jim O’Heir and Monica Horan).

On Friday (December 28), Ridge makes a new year’s resolution to Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) about putting her, and their marriage, first. Hope makes it to Catalina Island as a frantic Liam gets grounded in Los Angeles.

Coming up on B&B during the week of December 31:

  • Liam asks for Bill’s help.
