An actor in the long-running police television drama The Bill has been released from hospital after slashing his wrists apparently in response to being sacked.

Jeff Stewart, aged 52, has played PC Reg Hollis in the show since it started in 1984.

He slashed his wrists shortly after a meeting at the show's London studios where he was told his character was to be axed.

"We can confirm an incident occurred following a meeting with Jeff Stewart, when it was discussed that Jeff’s contract would not be renewed," a spokesman for the ITV1 show’s producers, Talkback Thames, said.

"Our primary concern is for Jeff Stewart's welfare. We are doing everything we can to ensure Jeff is getting the help he needs, and would ask that his privacy is respected at this difficult time. All our best wishes are with Jeff."

A London Ambulance spokesman said they were called to Deer Park Road in South West London, where the studio is based, at around 5.50pm on Tuesday evening.

Same reason someone in the military won't - because he was a biff and didn't deserve it. :wink:

Chicken and egg here.

Was he "let go/downsized" because he is a suicide candidate or did he try to top him self because he was sacked.

Or is he just another poofy actor luvey who can't take rejection and cried "Goodbye cruel world" while sawing at his wrists with a butter knife?

I have the inside scoop.

He was caught on mobile pulling over a car full of black lads in hoodys. At one point whilst trying to get the drivers details he looked in the back and said "Do you lot ever shut up"

"You lot" they said... "You lot - Whats that supposed to mean officer. Why is you being a racist."

Booomf - OC's interview - Required to Resign. The Met must be seen to stamp this kind of behaviour out. Any officers found using any kind of Racial slur will be Punished!

Sad day. He only had 6 and a half years left until he retired.

If he really really meant it then a RIP thread would be 18 pages long by now :)

If it was an entire nick would focus on one case at a time. they would get a conviction on every one but the backlog would go on for ever. :lol:

Is it a slow newsday or something?

So some actor in a soap gets the push and tries to top himself, no loss there then.

Can the BBC please sack the entire cast of Eastenders and issue them all with sharp knives please.

I'm glad you winked. I thought you were being serious for a second then. He will get an automatic appeal within six months but i doubt it will go well. His block at Sun Hill have squared away a whip around i believe.
