EastEnders: Teen says she didn’t sell sex story about Neil McDermott, and Fatboy’s dad cast!

The teenaged girl with whom EastEnders actor Neil McDermott reportedly had a one night stand claims she didn’t sell her story to a tabloid newspaper.

16 year old Chloe Peebles met Neil when he made a personal appearance at a night club in Teeside, and the pair spent the night together at his hotel.

Neil later issued an apology via The Sun newspaper to his wife Michelle, but since then, he has apparently left the marital home and was pictured without his wedding ring.

However, in an interview with the Evening Gazette yesterday, Peebles claimed she did not sell the story.

She said, “All I want is everyone to know I didn’t sell the story.

“I’m deeply sorry, I didn’t want this tohappen. “I didn’t know he was married and he had a baby. I’m so sorry to my family and friends as well.

“I was devastated. I didn’t want to hurt his wife or her family.

“I felt guilty, I didn’t want to be known as that type of person.”

In other news, it’s been confirmed that actor Colin Mace has been cast to play the role of Fatboy’s (Ricky Norwood) dad, Ashley Chubb.

It’s expected that we’ll meet Ashley when he arrives on the Square, broke and homeless.

A show insider said of the storyline, “Fatboy has been a real hit with viewers, and the bosses have decided that it’s now time to bring in his dad so people can see what Fatboy is really all about.”

Mace’s has previously appeared in Casualty, The Bill and Doctors.
