Marc Elliott had a crying baby fired from the set of 'EastEnders'.

The 31-year-old actor - who portrays new dad Syed Masood in the BBC One soap - has become the "Alan Sugar of Albert Square" by having certain tots sacked from the show for stealing his thunder.

Marc's on-screen mum Nina Wadia - who plays Zainab Masood in 'EastEnders' - told BANG Showbiz: "We always have one baby actor and one back-up baby, but sometimes the back-up baby is a bit rubbish.

"Marc has turned into the Alan Sugar of Albert Square and gets them fired even for crying a little bit!"

The hunky star - whose gay alter-ego recently revealed a shock when his estranged wife Amira Shah (Preeya Kalidas) returned to the Square with a baby in tow, despite him not knowing she was even pregnant - admitted he gets "annoyed" with the soap's young actors stealing his limelight.

Speaking at Monday night's (26.09.11) Inside Soap Awards - which saw 'EastEnders' bag the Best Soap gong - Marc joked: "Syed is coming to terms with becoming a dad for the first time. I do love having the babies around and they're amazing. But I get annoyed because they're always stealing my limelight.

"One literally wouldn't stop crying."

I can't believe that Marc & Nina joking in an interview about Marc getting a baby fired from Eastenders has been taken seriously, what a ridiculous article. By all accounts Marc is a really lovely person, an umlikely candidate for getting babies fired !

Marc and Nina were just joking in the interview and we the Chryedians were "lolling" reading their respective responses which were quite witty. I can't understand how their intelligent sense of humour could be misintrepreted and this article is not correct in anyway!!!!! They are both such lovely individuals.
