    EastEnders boss John Yorke extends his contract with the soap again

    EastEnders boss John Yorke has extended his contract with the soap once again, and will be staying for an extended period.

    The Exec Consultant will be around until at least the end of the year.

    Yorke took office at the show in June following the departure of Sean O'Connor and has been credited on screen as Executive Consultant since November.

    It's now thought that he'll stay on EastEnders until the end of this year, at least. (Prior to this news, we knew that Yorke would be staying on until June.)

    Jake Wood, who plays Max Branning, told The Sun: "If you look back at the history of the show he has come out with some of the best storylines.

    "He's a master of his craft. I've had about six bosses and he's the best."

    Yorke has certainly made plenty of positive changes to the soap, including bringing back Mel and the Slater family, as well as introducing the current knife crime storyline.

    Speaking to Digital Spy and other media, Yorke confirmed back in December that he'd be staying in charge for longer than originally planned.

    "I came for three months, which was quickly extended to six, and have now agreed to stay for a full year," Yorke explained. "Arguably because it's central to public service, EastEnders is one of the most important if not the most important programmes on the BBC.

    "But personally it's really important to me. I'd forgotten this is the best soap on television and I want to be here to make sure that happens.

    "If I can help in any way with reaching that very high bar, I'm delighted to do so."
