The EastEnders cast has reportedly been banned from appearing on this year's Strictly Come Dancing.

According to The Sun, producers won't let any of their stars appear on the show because the reality series is now running for 16 weeks.

Christopher Parker (Spencer Moon), Jill Halfpenny (Kate Mitchell), Patsy Palmer (Bianca Jackson), Louisa Lytton (Ruby Allen) and Matt Di Angelo (Deano Wicks) have all appeared on previous series of the dance competition.

"We love the show. But we can’t spare anyone for that long," an insider told the newspaper.

However, Emma Barton (Honey Mitchell), who departs the soap later this year, is apparently in talks to appear in the sixth series.
