'EastEnders': Riley Carter Millington Slams How Soap Handled Exit Of His Character

'It’s a shame to have gay characters and then you have to say goodbye.'

Former ‘EastEnders’ star Riley Carter Millington has slammed the way his exit from the soap was handled.

The actor played Kyle Slater, one of several characters who were axed by former executive producer Sean O’Connor when he took control of the soap last year.  

Fans saw Kyle leave Walford to do a catering course in France last November, after just over a year on the Square.
