Dean Gaffney has been dealt a blow just before Christmas as his car was broken into overnight.

The EastEnders actor’s Audi sports car was parked up in a London street only for Dean to return and find the driver’s window had been smashed in. Sharing photos of the nasty incident to his Instagram stories, Dean berated whoever committed the vandalism.

His belongings were scattered around and broken glass was all over the front inside leather seats and floor of the car and on the pavement below. Surveying the damage the vandalism had caused in an online video he shared to his 120,000 followers, Dean revealed the break in had caused him a “headache”.

The soap star posted the video with the words: “I could get angry but what’s the point… let karma work its magic… Christmas time in London… definitely a headache I could do without,” followed by an emoji of a monkey covering its eyes. It’s not known if Dean reported the criminal damage and break-in to the police.

Dean, 45, appears to have not had much luck with cars over the years. In 2019 he suffered in a road accident less than four months after a head-on collision near the BBC set.

Thankfully he walked away unscathed following the head-on smash – when leaving the Elstree studio – which took place between his white Skoda which collided with a Vauxhall Corsa. The minor accident came less than four months after he cheated death in a terrifying incident on the M25, in February 2019, while travelling to Brentwood, Essex, with a female passenger in the early hours.

Neither were hurt. The motor-mad star owned a £33,000 Mercedes at the time which he had delivered to the EastEnders set in March 2018, to celebrate the end of his year-long driving ban.

Dean, who plays hapless Robbie Jackson in the BBC One soap has had a very difficult few months following the loss of his beloved mother Marian. The telly star’s mother passed away on August 13th aged 69.

Paying tribute to his mum on Instagram, Dean shared with a beautiful photos, Dean wrote: “I am simply broken to share that my beautiful selfless mother Marian has sadly passed away. I was, am and always will be a mummy’s boy so this news has completely floored me.

“I spoke to her every day and in some ways I’m glad that I’m the one that found her asleep…To know I will never be able to physically speak to her or ever again is beyond any pain I’ve ever experienced in my life…Mum, I truly love you.” Daily Star Online has reached out to Dean for comment.
