EastEnders star Danny Hatchard in furious rant as he’s BANNED from bar after row with bouncers | The Sun
EASTENDERS actor Danny Hatchard let rip after he was banned from a pub following a row with bouncers, The Sun can exclusively reveal.
The BBC One soap star, 32, launched a furious rant at the boozer in Cheltenham for refusing him and his theatre co-stars entry after a show.
Danny, who played EastEnders' Lee Carter, is currently in the touring cast of The Full Monty 2023 tour.
He takes on the lead role of Gaz in The Full Monty, who was originally played by Robert Carlyle, with the bunch kicking off the performances at the Everyman in Cheltenham on September 14.

Danny posted a snap of the pub employee to his Instagram Stories – in an image we have chosen to muzz.

"Apparently (according to the guy) you are the same venue.
"If this is true can you please supply bodycam footage of said confrontation just so we can all see how aggressive your door team are at The Copa.
"Then I'll be expecting an apology from this bloke for being incredibly childish and unprofessional."
The Sun has gone to The Whittle Taps for comment.
Meanwhile, despite his soap career, Danny is no stranger to the theatre, having played Aaron in Eyes Closed Ears Covered at The Bunker Theatre, for which he was nominated for an Off West End Theatre Award.
Danny also starred in Oliver Twist at Regent's Park Open Air Theatre.
In August 2016, two years after his EastEnders debut in 2014, BBC bosses announced Danny's departure from the programme.
Danny left the show in 2017 and, in July that same year, admitted he was "disappointed" by his EastEnders exit.
