Danny Dyer has returned to the 'EastEnders' set after taking a break back in February, according to sources
Danny Dyer has returned to the 'EastEnders' set.
The 39-year-old actor left the soap temporarily in February for a well-deserved break, and sources have now said the star has officially reprised his role as loveable pub landlord Mick Carter as he was seen back on set on Monday (03.04.17).
A source said: "Danny has been missed these last few weeks. So it was a welcome sight seeing him drive back into the studios with a cheeky smile on his face. He picked up his scripts for filming a couple of weeks back. The scenes are classic soap, full of emotion and drama."
Whilst bosses are keen to keep his returning storyline a secret, insiders say fans won't be disappointed.
Another source told the Daily Star newspaper: "The storyline for his return is amazing."
Although he's already back on set, the hunk's exit scene, which was written at the last minute, only hit screens in recent weeks as his alter-ego jetted off to Bulgaria upon hearing the news that his daughter Nancy (Maddy Hill) had been hit by a car while travelling with her boyfriend Tamwar Masood (Himesh Patel).
Meanwhile, a source recently claimed that the cast and crew couldn't wait to have a "refreshed" Danny back on the set.
They said: "Everyone is looking forward to having a refreshed Danny back on the show. He's a big character on and off the set and his absence was really noticeable. Danny has taken some time out and is raring to go again. He'll be required for scenes from the start of next week."
And it's believed Danny's co-stars are planning to throw him a welcome back party because they know how hard he's been working recently.
An insider said: "They're keen to show everyone is behind him 100 per cent after his tough few months. They're planning a round of applause when he steps back behind the bar for filming for the first time.
"The cast know how important Danny is to the show's success and don't want it to be awkward. Danny will be welcomed back with open arms."
