Former EastEnders star Mohammed George has revealed that he was removed from the show’s 25th anniversary party.
On arriving at the party George, who played road sweeper Gus Smith, reportedly asked one of the show’s bosses why they hadn’t supported him when he was forced to leave the soap two years ago. The boss responded by having George removed from the party.

I’m sorry but Mohammed you are a FOOL!
I understand that you are still bitter about your character ( the docile/dumb road sweeper Gus who ran around the square looking like a runaway slave) being written out of the show, but turning up to the 25th anniversary party and then confronting one of the show’s bosses about your subsequent unemployment was just plain stupid.
What made you think that she would be comfortable discussing the unfortunate events that took place two years ago with you on this happy occasion?
You still being relatively angry, young, black and male was enough of a threat. She automatically thought ‘trouble maker’ and that’s why you were removed from the party.
If anything you should have used your head first and then used the occasion to slyly network! Who knows there might have been a casting director or TV executive from another show present who would have been willing to push some much needed TV work your way.
