Eastenders: Mickey And Keith Get Sacked
Eastenders boss Diederick Santer has decided to axe soap characters Mickey and Keith from Albert Square.
Joe Swash and David Spinx entered the show over four years ago as father and son, Mickey and Keith Miller, however of late their storylines have dried up and the pair are only occasionally wheeled out for the odd bit of light comedy and then they retreat back into their smelly house for another few weeks.
A friend of Joe’s toldThe Sun: “He and David were told their characters had run out of steam by EastEnders boss Diederick Santer. Joe was stunned at first. He’s loved playing Mickey and felt the fans still enjoyed watching his antics.”
They added: “But he soon realised if the stories weren’t there, he didn’t want to be just going through the motions. He’s now thinking over his next move carefully. He doesn’t want to become just another former soap star.”
