EastEnders: Bosses deny cast “unrest” over baby death storyline

It’s been reported by various media outlets that the cast of EastEnders have been expressing their “unrest” at being part of the highly controversial baby death storyline…

However, the show’s bosses deny this and a spokesperson told Digital Spy, “There is no truth whatsoever in claims that there is unrest at EastEnders.

“Although, as we’ve said, some changes are being made to the current storyline.

“This means cast and crew working to tighter deadlines, but this is not out of the ordinary on a big production like EastEnders.

“The show does go on and everyone will be working together to bring this storyline to its rightful conclusion.”

However, some newspapers are still reporting that some of the show’s cast are considering leaving EastEnders by way of protest, and one of those cited was Shane Richie who of course plays Alfie Moon…

However, he’s denied the allegation and further added that rumours of a staff walkout were “nonsense”. Samantha Womack has also insisted that she isn’t leaving the show because of the plotline, and amid

rumours that she’s close to a “breakdown”, she told The Sun that this is not true.

She said, “I’m NOT having a breakdown. Please don’t make me look like I’m having a nervous breakdown.”

The paper also claims that EastEnders bosses plan to end the storyline by having Ronnie hand back Kat’s baby Tommy.

This will apparently happen on the day Kat and Alfie bury Ronnie’s baby James, believing him of course to be their child.
