Dean Gaffney to leave 'EastEnders'

By
Dean Gaffney has been axed from EastEnders after eleven years playing Robbie Jackson, it has been announced.

Gaffney will leave along with onscreen partner Bindya Solanki in the New Year.

"Dean and Bindya have contributed an enormous amount to the programme," said executive producer Louise Berridge. "However, we do feel that the characters have reached the end of their natural course in the show, and they will both be leaving in Spring 2003.

"It is always sad to be saying goodbye to a good double act, and especially to a long-running character like Robbie Jackson, so we will be leaving the door open for both characters." Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
