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".

'He appears to be exhausted.

The cockney king planned to quit alcohol at the beginning of 2017 but following the National Television Awards where he was drinking booze the BBC show bosses chose to give him a break from the soap.

Danny had hinted last month about leaving the show as his current contract is up for renewal later in the year.

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".

Dyer's absence is sure to have caused havoc in the script department as he is the centre of numerous soap's major plotlines which are worked out months in advance.

Danny Dyer has reportedly been forced to take time off from EastEnders so that he can "sort his life out". A lot of scripts had to be torn up and it's caused a lot of behind-the-scenes chaos.

As the 39-year-old is set to take a number of weeks away from Albert Square, fellow actor John - who played Christian Clarke - spoke to Good Morning Britain about how intense the show and its filming schedule can be.

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".
