Danny Dyer Gets EastEnders Family Picture
Queen Vic's new landlord and clan pictured on set of BBC soap...
The lads' movie stalwart will play Mick Carter, the new landlord of Walford's Queen Vic pub - with Kellie Bright playing his wife Linda.
And it has now been revealed that Sam Strike and Maddy Hill will also join the cast as their children Johnny and Nancy.
Strike commented: "I'm really excited to be joining EastEnders and the Carter family. They're all really strong characters and I can't wait to see what EastEnders has planned for us all.
"I've grown up watching Danny and Kellie, both of whom are lovely, so to be playing their son is kind of surreal."
And Hill added: "I feel incredibly privileged to have been given such an amazing opportunity and I can't wait to start work with such a talented cohort of actors."
They will join existing characters Shirley and Tina Carter, played by Linda Henry and Luisa Bradshaw-White respectively.
The new characters are to arrive in Albert Square to take over the pub later this year.
