"Danny has made Mick Carter an iconic character which we shall always be grateful for.

"However we wonโ€™t be saying goodbye just yet as thereโ€™s still quite some time โ€“ and plenty of explosive drama for Mick - to come before he departs Walford."

Reports suggest the actor has been poached by Sky for a six figure salary.
