Robert Kazinsky suspended for sex offence

EastEnders actor Robert Kazinsky is to be suspended from the BBC One soap for bombarding a model with obscene text messages and photographs.

The 23-year-old, who plays Sean Slater, will leave the show for two months from early February, producers have decided.

The punishment follows a story written about him in The People newspaper, a spokesman for the programme said.

The actor, from Brighton, has apologised "for any offence caused and for bringing the show into disrepute".

His suspension has been timed to minimise disruption to forthcoming storylines.
