'EastEnders' Actor Dean Gaffney Claims Show Needs To Introduce More Older Characters

'The show does go through rollercoasters... at the moment this is a transition period.'

‘EastEnders’ actor Dean Gaffney has revealed how he thinks the soap’s bosses can pull in more viewers.

Earlier this year, it was confirmed that Dean would be returning to Albert Square as Robbie Jackson on a permanent basis, one of the last decisions to be made by the soap’s former chief Sean O’Connor, who stepped down in the summer.

With many ‘EastEnders’ fans commenting that the soap is in something of a slump at present, Dean has now shared his idea for giving the show a boost, claiming producers should be going after more mature viewers, rather than the ‘Hollyoaks’ crowd.
