New teen heading for Albert Square & Bobby Davro quits

EastEnders producers have cast unknown actress Lauren Crace as the soap's new teenage character Danielle Jones.

19-year-old Danielle arrives on Albert Square and quickly captures the attention of fellow newcomer Callum Monks (Elliott Jordan), who will be seen on screens for the first time in August.

The romance plot becomes more complicated when Callum also sets his sights on Stacey Branning (Lacey Turner), soon after she hires Danielle to work on her market stall.

Lauren, 22, revealed: "I'm thrilled. It's a great first role and I just can't wait to see what is in store."

Producer Diederick Santer added: "Lauren is a real find - a lovely, talented and hugely watchable actress."

star Bobby Davro has decided to quit his role as Vinnie Monks after just one year.
The actor revealed his decision to producers this week after being offered a new lucrative project. He has also been approached to star in a Christmas pantomime.

"I have had a fantastic year with EastEnders and made lots of friends," Davro told The Mirror. "I hope to be back at some point."

Executive producer Diederick Santer added: "We've really enjoyed having Bobby with us at EastEnders. I hope this is not so much goodbye as see you later."

Davro will bow out in the autumn, but his on-screen son Callum, who appears for the first time next month, will provide him with a link back to Albert Square.

A show insider explained: "Bobby has been a real hit with EastEnders fans and it has been mutually agreed he will leave the show shortly but a return is quite possible. With his on-screen son set to arrive, that will enable him to visit Walford next year if he has to come back to sort out any problems."
