The character was at the centre of a rape storyline that saw Dean sexually assault Linda Carter, played by Kellie Bright, in the Queen Vic in scenes that aired in 2014.

Dean was later acquitted of attempted rape after standing trial off-screen.

Matt made his debut on EastEnders in 2006 and starred on the soap until 2008, before then returning in 2014 for two more years.

Since appearing on EastEnders, Matt has also starred in drama Death In Paradise and BBC series Ordinary Lies.
