    Cast fears after Danny Dyer announcement

    They see the loss of such a big star as a sign its fortunes have hit rock bottom, particularly after a run of bad ratings.

    Danny, 44, is leaving the BBC1 show after playing pub landlord Mick Carter for nine years.

    That could see the likes of Kellie Bright, who plays Mick’s wife Linda, and Lacey Turner (Stacey Slater) follow him out.

    An insider said: “The feeling among the EastEnders team is his departure is seen as a very bad omen because he’s such a key part of the cast.

    “Mick is such an integral and well-liked character that his removal will only make the situation deteriorate. And they don’t want to hang around to see things go from bad to worse, particularly if their roles are linked to Danny’s part. But at this stage it’s not clear exactly who’d follow suit and go.”

    The past year has seen the departures of Maisie Smith, who plays Tiffany Butcher, and Adam Woodyatt (Ian Beale).

    There are also fears Rose Ayling-Ellis, who plays Frankie Lewis, could quit after winning Strictly.

    Who is the man behind Eastenders Mick Carter?

    Danny Dyer is a 44-year-old actor and soap heartthrob known for making a slew of low-budget gangster movies.

    Born in Canning Town, East London in 1977, Danny – who is an avid West Ham United fan – now lives in Essex.

    Some of his most memorable projects include The Football Factory, The Business and Doghouse.

    Beginning his career at the age of 16, he was discovered by an agent who auditioned him for the part of Martin Fletcher in the Granada Television series Prime Suspect 3 in 1993.

    Since then, other TV jobs have included roles in Cadfael, A Touch of Frost, Loved Up, Thief Takers, Soldier Soldier, Casualty, Hollyoaks Later and Skins – as well as enjoying a hugely successful film career.

    Nowadays though, he’s best-known for playing Queen Vic landlord Mick Carter in EastEnders.

    Sally Dynevor reveals Dancing on Ice fears

    The soap stalwart, who plays Sally Metcalfe on the cobbles, will be putting on her skates for the Dancing On Ice rink on Sunday — and says it is the “scariest thing” she has ever faced.

    The ITV show, which is back for its 14th series, features a star-studded line-up of celebs from the world of TV, music, sport and dancing.

    Sally, 58, said: “I walked to base camp Everest, but that was with a team and I was on two feet.

    “The other scary thing that I did for Prevent Breast Cancer was I cycled from London to Paris and I vowed that I wouldn’t do anything where I didn’t have two feet on the floor.

    “I have two feet on the floor with this, but the ice is so slippery and that’s really scary.

    “I’m pretty terrified of falling on the ice. The thought of it terrifies me. This is the scariest thing I’ve ever done.”

    It was Sally’s Everest mission that stopped her joining Dancing On Ice sooner, as she climbed 17,000ft to the South Base Camp in November 2019, raising more than £100,000 to help fight breast cancer.

    Gray Atkins makes horrifying decision on Eastenders

    In upcoming episodes Chelsea attempts to cut all future ties with Gray by signing Jordan’s birth certificate, following Whitney and Kheerat’s advice.

    However, Gray is one step ahead of her and manages to register their son’s birth, gifting a framed copy of Jordan’s birth certificate with his name on it to a deflated Chelsea, who refuses to eat.

    Another hurdle for Chelsea to overcome in her attempts to leave the lawyer, which only discourages the beautician.

    This leads to her mother Denise to recommend that Gray sees a GP in the hopes that Chelsea can get help.

    Chelsea has been putting up a fight against Gray in recent weeks.

    After finding out what came of Chantelle, Gray’s first wife, during their Christmas Day wedding (December 25, 2021), Chelsea has been adamant on leaving and exposing the father of her son.

    She has been able to count on Whitney’s – who revealed to her the abuse Chantelle endured for years at the hands of Gray – unwavering help and support.

    Next week, Chelsea will do everything she can to register Jordan’s certificate alone.

    But after she raised his suspicion, Gray has installed cameras within their home, tracking her every move.

      Danny Dyer pay cut (continued…)

      A TV insider told The Sun: “When you’re an actor and you’ve played a character for nearly ten years, of course you’re going to want to go off and try new things. But you can’t go off and do two shows at once.

      “The audience figures and high-profile job at EastEnders is great for them, but if you want time off to go away and do other stuff you can’t just up and leave with no notice.

      “No drama gets filmed within six months, so that’s why many big names end up going on a break from the soap.

      “How many times has Jessie Wallace, Shane Richie and Steve McFadden said they’re leaving, but have always come back.

      “Sometimes it’s not a bad thing for the characters if the actor wants some time off, it means they’re rested and ready to return fresh with bigger storylines.”
