Remember when I told you guys that Gary Lucy would be joining the cast of Eastenders, but details about his character hadn’t been revealed?
Well, it has been confirmed that Lucy, who was expected to be a womanising lothario, will instead cause a stir between Christian and Syed, as Walford’s latest gay character.
An Eastenders insider said, “All the girls think he’s a real ladies’ man. But they’re disappointed when it turns out he’s not interested in women.
“He’ll ruffle a few feathers and Christian and Syed’s relationship will be tested.”
The former Footballers’ Wives actor will be playing city banker Danny Pennant in the soap and a spokesperson for the show has said that he will “inevitably create controversial encounters and his provocative and lustful nature is bound to land him in trouble.”
