‘EastEnders’ is set to welcome a new face, in the form of actor Jonny Labey, who’s joining the soap to play Pam and Les’s grandson Paul Coker.

Paul will arrive in the Square this June, after two years working as a fun-loving club rep.

Jonny as Paul

While bosses are keeping tight-lipped on storyline details, they have revealed that he’ll be romancing one Albert Square resident.

‘EastEnders’ executive producer Dominic Treadwell-Collins has teased fans, stating: “We’re all looking forward to seeing the trouble that Paul will cause for his grandparents as he uncovers some secrets from the past and sets one heart in particular racing…”

This is Jonny’s first huge TV role, and the actor is understandably excited to be making his soap debut.

“I am overjoyed to have been given the role of Paul Coker and am thrilled to be joining the show at such a prevalent time as it marks its 30th anniversary,” he states. “I know I've got a lot of work to do to live up to the talent I shall be working with, but I have never felt more welcome and cannot wait to get started.”

Jonny’s arrival comes after a number of ‘EastEnders’ cast changes.

Sam Strike and Ben Hardy, who played Jonny Carter and Peter Beale, made their exits earlier this year, and in their absence, a number of celebrity guest stars have rocked up in E20.

Earlier this month, Denise van Outen made her debut - and wasted no time in getting to know Max Branning - and Bonnie Langford is also due to arrive (probably in a black cab), as Kush’s mum.
