Eastenders Star hits back over sacking
The cast of Eastenders were shocked when a popular member of the cast was sacked but they were not as shocked as Melissa Suffield who plays Lucy Beale. Melissa, 17, who was sacked in May after six years on the hit show cannot believe how harsh the bosses of the show were with her.
The actress who was fired for her unruly behaviour has said she is disgusted with the way she was treated by the bosses of the show.
Melissa told The Sun Newspaper: “It’s not like I was going out, punching photographers and being sick in a gutter. I’m only doing what every other girl of 17 does.
“It’s not an excuse, but out of all the things Lucy has done, the only one I’ve done is drink underage.”
According to reports, Bosses of the show were fed up with her bad behaviour which includes raunchy images appeared in Facebook as well as the actress leaving an over 18 nightclub at 4am in the morning.
She said: “They were really angry. I was apologetic and told them it wouldn’t happen again.”
The actress could not convince bosses of the show to keep her on and was eventually sacked. There have been rumours that Lucy will return to the show but played by a different actress.
