EastEnders star Zack Morris is begging for another job on social media – so is he leaving the cast of the BBC soap?

Zack plays Keegan Baker in the soap.

And it appears the actor has got wind of his potential dream job while listening to the radio – and he made it clear he wants it badly.

How long has Zack been part of the EastEnders cast?

The actor has played Keegan in the BBC soap since January 2017.

He was the first member of the Taylor family introduced – coming in as Shakil Kazemi’s best friend.

Zack is passionate about being an actor and previously starred in the West End before joining the soap.

He previously said: “I’ve always wanted to be an actor. To get a job in EastEnders is great because I do get to call myself an actor now, and that’s a big thing for me.

“I’ve done work before this, though. I’ve done TV dramas, comedies, some West End shows, so I’ve done a few things. But EastEnders is the biggest job I’ve had.”

New storyline for Keegan

Next week on EastEnders, Zack’s character Keegan will be overjoyed when he thinks his wife Tiffany is pregnant.

When he’s shortlisted for a food award, Keegan is talking to the local press about what it means to him when he sees his wife.
