Danny Dyer on 'enforced break' from EastEnders

Ex-EastEnder John Partridge on the soap's'relentless schedule as Danny Dyer takes time off

'The producers are concerned about him for a number of reasons, ' a source claims. "I'm sure everybody loves Danny", he told the hosting duo.

Commenting on Danny's situation the star said that the Mick Carter actor had a lot of public support: 'I'm sure that he has a great response from people in the street.

"I know some people in EastEnders don't necessarily have that but I'm sure everybody loves Danny".

The source added: "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".

We were beginning to think the dad-of-three really will be the next Doctor Who. I think I could do it easy.

Eastenders viewers were shocked last night when Danny's on screen son Lee returned briefly. "I mean, I did try to give up drinking but - as you can see - I'm now sucking on a lager".
