His departure was certainly emotional for Lorraine, who played his mother Karen on the soap.

“I really miss Danny Walters, as we had the best laughs on set,” the actress told Inside Soap.

“The door is left open, and Keanu has a son on the Square, so you never know. We’ll miss him and he’ll do well – gorgeous boy!”
