Two more characters axed from EastEnders
Today’s edition of the Daily Star reports that 13 year old Charlie had to be comforted by his on-set chaperone when he heard the news that his character is to be written out.
The paper also speculates that Ben may leave the show as part of the culmination of Ben’s bullying of his half-sister, Louise.
An EastEnders source is quoted in the paper as saying, “Charlie and Maddy are two very popular youngsters.
“So there were a lot of sad faces when everyone heard they were both leaving.
“They’ve both had their fair share of dramatic storylines and will be greatly missed.
“Ben’s exit will be one of the biggest storylines of the summer. It’s going to very dramatic and will have repercussions for months to come.
“Fans are in for a real treat with this one.
“Maddy has already filmed her exit. She was pretty emotional as she’s very close to Jo [Joyner], who plays her mum on the show.
“But she’s had a great time working on ‘Enders and has everything going for her.”
