EastEnders star Danny Walters has reportedly split from his long-term girlfriend.

The hunky actor, who plays Keanu Taylor on the soap, dated Lily Smith for five years, but now wants to focus on future goals.

Danny, 26, regularly uploaded loved-up snaps with Lily, but hasn’t shared anything since November of last year when they enjoyed a day exploring Greenwich in London.

A source said: ‘Danny and Lily still have a lot of respect for each other, but want to spend time concentrating on their own goals.’

They added to The Sun: ‘They’re both really young and have a lot of growing to do separately so felt it was best to try being single.’

Danny, who’s currently on holiday in Thailand, first appeared on TV screens as Tiger Dyke in ITV sitcom Benidorm in 2014.

He also made a guest appearance in BBC series Our World War and Call the Midwife.
