Former EastEnders and I’m A Celebrity star Dean Gaffney was fined after pleading guilty to speeding.
Gaffney, 43, who played Robbie Jackson on the BBC soap, was caught driving at 54mph in a 40mph zone near Barnsley in December.
After pleading guilty, the actor left before being convicted of “being harassed for selfies,” heard Sheffield Magistrates’ Court.
Gaffney, of Hertford, was fined £ 290 and received three penalty points.
He was charged after his Audi A7 activated a speed camera in the early hours of December 14 on the A616 between Langsett and Midhopestones.
A second charge of failing to provide driver identification information was dropped after Gaffney admitted the offense of speeding.

Granted the offense, Gaffney demanded that the “thing be dealt with in his absence” after being recognized outside the courtroom.
When the magistrate asked where the actor was at the beginning of the hearing, an usher explained that he had left the building.
The chancellor said he had asked to leave because several people had stopped him to ask for a photo.
Gaffney was on EastEnders between 1993 and 2003, returning for occasional appearances before starting a two-year comeback in 2017.
He also appeared in the sixth series of I’m A Celebrity … Get Me Out Of Here in 2006, finishing in fifth place.
