EastEnders' Danny Dyer and Kellie Bright arrive on set after show's coronavirus outbreak
EASTENDERS stars Danny Dyer and Kellie Bright arrived on set after show's coronavirus outbreak.
The Linda Carter actress, 44, and the Mick Carter star, 43, looked glum as they made their way to the studio in Borehamwood on Monday.
Kellie donned a pink jumper over a grey top, with blue jeans and grey sandals.
She was ushered out of the people carrier before making her way into the studio.
Shortly afterwards, the actress was followed by her on-screen husband Danny Dyer.
Wearing a black mask, cardigan and blue skinny jeans, he also looked stern as he stepped into work.
The pair have arrived on set following negative coronavirus tests after an outbreak on set.
Joe Nugent, first assistant director, spent two days on set while positive with coronavirus.
Cast members were “apoplectic” and there were fears that a revolt would plunge the soap into crisis.
Chiefs confirmed two positive cases of coronavirus on set, Nugent and an unnamed cast member.
Others, including star Danny Dyer, had negative tests following the set scare. Some well-loved screen stars live with vulnerable family members.
Others, like Dyer, were worried for loved ones including his pregnant daughter Dani.
Top actors were “incandescent” at first over the way they believed EastEnders had tried to keep the disease outbreak secret.
But it emerged the director, who had worked on the show for up to ten years, had kept it quiet.
An EastEnders source told The Sun: “The director has let everyone down. The show has worked so hard to get EastEnders back on TV, and he could have undone all that work.
“Senior actors were livid and felt let down. There was talk of a mutiny. He was given the boot, partly to assuage cast members.”
Staff have been tested regularly since filming resumed on June 29.
Production on EastEnders came to a halt in March, when the UK went into lockdown.
