A spokesperson for EastEnders said: “We can confirm these actors will be leaving EastEnders. We wish them all the best.”
An insider told the Sun newspaper: “Dominic didn’t feel the characters who are leaving fit with the direction he is taking the show so he quickly decided to write them out.
“He has only been in a month but he is already making big changes. He knows what he wants for EastEnders and is putting plans in place quickly. His arrival has gone down really well with the cast and crew and there is a real energy in the studios right now – even though some cast are scared they could be next for the chop.”
Treadwell-Collins, a former story editor who created the famous Who Killed Archie? whodunnit, took over as executive producer in July.
He recently cast two new characters who will make their debut in the coming months – comedian Terry Alderton is to play Bianca Butcher’s new boyfriend Terry Spraggan, while former Holby City actress Luisa Bradshaw-White is to play Shirley Carter’s sister Tina.
