Danny Dyer has opened up about his fears that EastEnders bosses could kill off his character Mick Carter.
The pub landlord is struggling with life after prison and is haunted by memories of his life behind bars.
But could there even more drama in the pipeline for Mick? And could he killed by the seemingly immortal Stuart Halfway?
Appearing on EastEnders’ official Twitter account, Danny was asked the question every fan wants to know – is he leaving any time soon?
"I ain’t goin’ nowhere," he insisted.

But Danny did add: "Unfortunately, it’s not really my decision to make. It’s the powers that be. As long as they want Mick around, and as long as Mick’s involved in storylines that are inspiring and stuff that I really enjoy playing, and I’ve got my Carter little mob around me, I ain’t goin’ nowhere, baby!
"It’s a great job, very grateful for it! As long as they want me, I’m here!"
Asked about what qualities he liked and disliked about Mick, Danny revealed: "I think I’ve been blessed with Mick, to be honest.
Danny said that he didn’t want to go anywhere
"I think he’s an all-rounder, sort of soap character-wise. He’s got a bit of everything about him.
"He can have a bit of Phil Mitchell about him, in terms of [that] he’s very protective of his family. He’s also got a bit of the Alfie Moon, where you’re sort of rooting for him in the respect that he’s quite loving and wears his heart on his sleeve.
"I would say Mick’s best personality [trait] is, I like his feminine side. His worst side of his personality is maybe his aggression. He’s quite aggressive. He goes off his head when things are not really going his way. That’s what makes us perfect, doesn’t it? Our flaws!"
