EASTENDERS star Rose Ayling-Ellis has returned to filming at the soap after taking a break for Strictly Come Dancing. The actress - who plays Frankie Lewis in the BBC soap - has returned in time for the news her on-screen dad Danny Dyer has quit the soap. "My first day back was yesterday," she said on This Morning. "It was good fun.
It’s weird to be back. Everyone was so excited to see me again, back in the Vic, and it was really lovely." Earlier this week it was revealed actor Danny had decided to quit his role as Mick Carter after nine years.
A spokesperson for the soap teased: “Danny will be leaving EastEnders when his contract comes to an end later this year. "Danny has made Mick Carter an iconic character which we shall always be grateful for. "However we won’t be saying goodbye just yet as there’s still quite some time – and plenty of explosive drama for Mick - to come before he departs Walford." Danny has previously taken leave from playing Mick to pursue other interests but always returned to the role he has held since 2013.Read more on thesun.co.uk
