EastEnders’ Ricky Norwood to meet with BBC bosses over cannabis video

EastEnders star Ricky Norwood will meet with BBC bosses after reportedly being videoed smoking cannabis.

The actor, who plays Arthur ‘Fatboy’ Chubb in the soap, was also seen performing a sex act while naked on Skype, and will discuss the incident with EastEnders bosses next week.

“We will be meeting with Ricky early next week to discuss this matter,” said a spokeswoman for the show.

“We are unable to comment any further at this stage.”

The video, more than eight minutes long, is thought to have been filmed recently and was captured on Skype by a woman that Norwood met online, reports The Sun.

Norwood recently revealed that he expects the soap to win more awards as the work of new executive producer Dominic Treadwell-Collins continues to come through.

He explained at the time: “I guarantee you this time next year, the favourite for the awards will be EastEnders. I think Dominic’s doing a great job. He’s got some great ideas and he’s got a fresh new vision.

“I’m really excited actually about what is going to be coming up for Fats and for the show. There is going to be something for everybody. It’s just the beginning.”
