[news] Ricky leaves Eastenders… newsUnlimited has the story [Text Only]and so does BBC News [low graphics]. From newsUnlimited: “Ricky stumbled onto our screens in 1988, and fate has pissed mercilessly into his eyes ever since. It’s been nothing but disappointment, heartbreak, humiliation and plodding, battleship-grey drudgery. And while he may not have suffered with dignity – there’s nothing dignified about him – he has at least avoided pulling an “Arthur Fowler” and plunging into full-blown mental unhingery. Until now.”
