EastEnders star Brian Conley is said to have quit the hit BBC soap after he was unable to appear in various pantomime roles next year.

Reports in The Sun say the actor had to choose choose between his pantomime appearances and the TV soap. The festive pantomime shows in 2024 clash with filming for EastEnders 40th anniversary, and a source has claimed that if any of the cast want to take part in the “five-week run”, the soap would be unable to use them in the anniversary plans.

Many soap stars are regulars on the panto circuit and Brian, 62, is said to make a six-figure sum for playing the role of Buttons in the Cinderella pantomime.

EastEnders 40th anniversary falls in February 2025 and the soap is already making preparations for its landmark birthday, with filming scheduled to take place right in the middle of panto season in 2024.
