EastEnders bosses have cast Danny Dyer to play the new landlord of the Queen Vic.
Dyer has landed the role of Shirley Carter's brother Mick, who will move to Walford with his family at the end of the year and immediately take over at The Vic.
Kellie Bright is also joining the cast of EastEnders as Mick's wife Linda.
Mick is the youngest of the Carter siblings but although he has always adored his sister Shirley, they have been estranged for years due to animosity between her and Linda.
Billed as a "bloke's bloke", Mick loves his wife, children and dog - and viewers will soon learn that he is a "big softie" at heart.
Speaking of his new role, Dyer commented: "I'm so excited about starting a new chapter in my career and I cannot wait to become part of the East End family."
