Walford favourite Danny Walters, who plays hunky mechanic Keanu Taylor, has announced that he’s quitting EastEnders.
The actor told Digital Spy: “It has been a joy to play Keanu Taylor for the last two and a half years.

“I have been blessed to work with the most fantastic creative team.
“I will miss them and my fellow actors immensely.
“EastEnders will always hold a special place in my heart and I will continue to be an avid fan.”
EastEnders’ executive producer Jon Sen added: “Keanu’s story is set to come to a dramatic and blistering conclusion in the near future as one of the best kept secrets on the Square is finally revealed with devastating consequences.
“We’d all like to thank Danny for his nuanced performance as Keanu Taylor over the last two and half years.
“What Danny has brought to his character has been one of the reasons the ‘Sheanu’ affair has been such compulsive viewing for fans. Everyone at EastEnders wishes him well for the future.”
There are no renewed fears that Keanu will be killed at Christmas as Phil Mitchell discovers the baby his wife Sharon is carrying is his.
An EastEnders insider revealed: “Keanu should know that secrets never stay secret in Walford and he’s been playing with fire for months.
The truth is going to come out in spectacular fashion and bosses are promising that Keanu’s exit is going to be explosive.”
