Annette Badland recalls ‘awful’ and ‘painful’ EastEnders exit

OHMYGOSSIP — Annette Badland says her ‘EastEnders’ exit was “awful” and “very painful” – but she would be up for returning to the soap.
The 68-year-old actress was left “heartbroken” when former exec producer Sean O’Connor said he didn’t want her alter-ego Aunt Babe in the Queen Vic or in Albert Square, which left her feeling like her character had let everyone down and resulted in her having an “ugly end” on the show.
She said: “I’d been brought in by Dominic Treadwell-Collins, who said it would be Dickensian and fun, but the new executive, Sean O’Connor, wasn’t as interested in Babe.
“Sean said it was ‘au revoir’ and not ‘goodbye’ but he didn’t want Babe in the pub or on the Square. I’d been there about three years and it was my life. It was heartbreaking, really. They gave me such an ugly end.
“Lovely and fabulous to relish the scripts by Daran Little, but it was just awful, very painful. I felt Babe had let them all down.”
Despite her anguish at being told Babe wasn’t needed in Walford any longer, the former ‘Bergerac’ star would consider returning to the soap and hopes Mick Carter, her character’s nephew – who is played by Danny Dyer – will reach out to her one day.
She added to Radio Times magazine: “I’d love to go back for a specific story. Hopefully one day Mick will need Babe and want her back.”
Annette starred as Babe from January 2014 until February 2017, but hinted just days after her on-screen exit that her alter-ego could be back at some point.
She said: “The great thing about Babe is she’s a survivor. She’s wounded, but she won’t give in – and so I think with all the threats she made, Babe might be back at some point.
“She’s cursed the Carters, and you don’t cross Aunt Babe and get away with it.”
