Footballers' Wives star becomes an EastEnder

NEW ROLE: Actor Chuck Venn is joining BBC's popular soap, EastEnders

FORMER FOOTBALL Wives star, Chuck Venn is joining the cast of the BBC's popular soap, EastEnders.

Venn has been cast in the role of Ray, the long lost father of Morgan (Devon Higgs) - Bianca’s (Patsy Palmer) son, who comes because Morgan wants to know more about his skin colour.

"I have had the pleasure of working on many great productions with fantastic artistes such as Morgan Freeman and I have to say working on EastEnders feels like it is up there with the best of them," Venn said of his role.

He added: "EastEnders is etched in British history and it is an honour and a pleasure to be part of it."

Whitney (Shona McGarty), Bianca's adoptive daughter, also notices that Bianca is strapped for cash, so she decides that it's time to take matters into her own hands by tracking Ray down.

Later in the week, Whitney goes behind Bianca's back by taking Morgan to meet his father at a café - and Ray is blown away as he comes face-to-face with his secret son at last.

The first episode would be shown tonight at 7.30 on BBC1
