Danny Dyer ‘Forced To Take Break From EastEnders By Worried Producers'

Huffington Post UK logo Huffington Post UK 17/02/2017 Matt Bagwell

Danny Dyer is reportedly taking an enforced break from ‘EastEnders’ in a bid to get his life back on track. 

According to The Sun, producers of the BBC One soap have become concerned about Danny’s behaviour outside of the show and want to get him back at his best. 

Danny, who plays Queen Vic landlord Mick Carter, will now be taking a number of weeks off from filming, according to reports. 

A source told The Sun: “The producers are concerned about him for a number of reasons.

“It was clear to onlookers he appeared very drunk at the NTAs. It is best that he takes some time out to sort his life out. He appears to be exhausted. 

“As a result, Danny is not filming on the show at all. There is an enforced break that is expected to last a number of weeks. 

“At the end of the day, he remains the biggest star of the show — so everyone is determined to get him back to his best.” 

Only last month, the 39-year-old star hinted that he might leave Albert Square.

“Four years is a long time,” he said. “It’s been really rewarding but there’s other stuff out there. 

“I’d love to show other sides to me, I loved theatre and all that.” 

Danny’s off-screen antics have made headlines in the past. Last year, he ended up with a black eye after getting caught up in a fight at V Festival with friends of former ‘TOWIE’ star Mark Wright. 

And in 2014, he got a bit too close for comfort to ‘Bake Off’ queen Mary Berry during a very sweary appearance on stage at the TV Choice Awards.
