Soap star to meet with bosses over Skype video scandal


EastEnders bosses have called an urgent meeting with soap actor Ricky Norwood after he was reportedly caught smoking marijuana while performing a sex act in a Skype video.

The 28-year-old actor, who plays Fatboy in the BBC soap, is said to have filmed an eight-and-a-half minute video of himself smoking the drug while not wearing any clothes and with his face in full view.

He is now being called up by show bosses who want to talk to him to discuss the matter further.

An EastEnders spokesperson said, “We will be meeting with Ricky early next week to discuss this matter.”

Ricky is thought to have been speaking to a glamour girl on Skype, and reports say she filmed the conversation and is trying to sell it on to an X-rated celebrity video site.

Ricky joined EastEnders in 2010, winning the best newcomer National Television Award the following year.
