Star of The Bill attempts suicide after being sacked

‘One of the longest-serving stars on hit TV drama The Bill, Jeff Stewart, has tried to kill himself after being sacked from the show.

Stewart, who played the popular character PC Reg Hollis, slashed his wrists after being told his contract would not be renewed, The Sun newspaper reported.

The 52-year-old actor was the only original 1984 cast member left on the show, which is one of ABC TV’s most popular programs.

Stewart cut his wrists in his dressing room at the south London studios where the show is filmed but then telephoned for help.

Security staff found him and called an ambulance.’
