Danny Walters bids farewell to Albert Square

Speaking to the Radio Times, Danny said: “It’s been a blast. From the things my character has done, to the drama that he’s got himself involved in, to the danger he’s got himself involved in, and to the women that he’s got himself involved in over the years. It’s been a rollercoaster of a ride, but what a journey it’s been.”

He also revealed he’s taken a memento from his time on the show: “Yes! I’ve taken his greasy mechanic Taylors Autos overalls!”
