EastEnders’ bosses have strongly denied reports of bad behaviour from Danny Dyer on the set of the BBC soap.

The claims that the Mick Carter actor has clashed with cast and crew comes after it was confirmed he has taken an extended break from the show.

An EastEnders spokeswoman has refuted a story in the Sun on Sunday that claims Danny had walked off set, saying there was”absolutely no truth in any of these allegations”.

She said: “Danny is always a consummate professional.

“Danny has never walked off set, nor has he ever lost his temper or been rude to anyone at work.

“Danny is an extremely popular member of cast and respected by everyone on the show.”

It has since been revealed that the 39-year-old actor has flown to South Africa after being giving a break from the soap.

In a statement, the BBC confirmed to HuffPost UK that Danny would be taking a break from ‘EastEnders’, but denied it had been enforced.

“Danny is on a short break from EastEnders. This was not enforced by bosses nor has he quit the show,” the statement read.

Meanwhile, his EastEnders’ castmates are reportedly concerned the actor is set to quit the BBC soap for good.

The 39-year-old actor, who is paid £400,000 a year, is contracted to stay with the soap until November.
