Six EastEnders Stars For The Chop

Six EastEnders stars were shown the door over the weekend as new executive producer Bryan Kirkwood moved to freshen up the show.

Mechanic Minty Peterson and cabbie Charlie Slater, played by Cliff Parisi and Derek Martin are among those to be axed. The others to go will be Libby Fox, played by Belinda Owusu, Liam Bergin as Danny Mitchell, Liz Turner – actress Kate Williams – and David Proud, wheelchair-bound Adam Best.

While there will be few people distressed to see Adam leaving The Square, the others will be missed by the rest of the cast when they are phased out (or in some cases killed off) over the next 6 months.

When it was announced that Kat Slater and Alfie Moon would be returning as part of a shake-up by ex-Hollyoaks boss Kirkwood, many cast members feared that there would be cuts and that has proved to be the case.

“It’s sad to see characters go, but when a new executive producer comes in they’re always keen to refresh the show,” a source told The Sun. “Some new people will be joining – and some of those will be youngsters.”
