EASTENDERS star Matt Lapinskas has broken his silence on getting a 'normal job' between acting roles - and now has his sights set on starring in another popular soap.

The actor, 33, swapped Albert Square for a construction site back in 2020 during lockdown. At the time, Matt - best known for playing Antony Moon in EastEnders between 2011 and 2012 - took to Instagram to promote his own building firm called Brightside Builders.

Two years on and the star is back doing what he loves the most - acting and being on stage. In an exclusive chat at the Whsky Label launch party last night, Matt opened up about his thoughts on being called a "failed actor".

Matt said: "At the end of the day, when lockdown happened and I started doing some building work, they sort of like, not that they shamed me, but they were like 'failed actor turned builder'.
