Leslie Grantham “remains poorly and is being taken care of by medical staff”, a consultant for the ex-EastEnders actor has instructed the BBC.
The affirmation follows a story in The Sun saying the 71-year-old was “gravely ill” and “fighting for his life”.
The newspaper reported that Grantham – who performed “Dirty” Den Watts within the BBC cleaning soap – had returned to the UK from Bulgaria to obtain medical consideration.
His agent mentioned a assertion could be issued “at the appropriate time”.
Grantham moved to Bulgaria after filming TV sequence The English Neighbour there in 2010.
The actor appeared in EastEnders from 1985 to 1989, when his character was seemingly murdered.
Dirty Den subsequently returned to Albert Square in 2003, solely to be definitively killed off in 2005.
Grantham was written out of the cleaning soap after photographs emerged of him apparently exposing himself in his dressing room.
The actor subsequently revealed he had tried to kill himself 3 times as a results of the scandal.
