Three-month ban for EastEnder Best

EastEnders has suspended another of its young cast members after show bosses disciplined actor Khali Best.

The star, who plays Dexter Hartman in the hit BBC soap, made his debut last January and won the newcomer award at the National Television Awards earlier this year.

A spokeswoman for the show said: " Khali Best has been suspended from EastEnders for three months. We will not comment any further on this matter."

Fellow cast member Ricky Norwood is still suspended from the soap after reports he exposed himself and smoked cannabis on video.

The actor, who plays Fatboy in the BBC soap, was suspended for two months and apologised after details emerged of the clip that was apparently recorded during a conversation on Skype.

Norwood has been in the soap since 2010 and also appeared in the on-line spin-off show E20.
