We are not quite sure what they have been drinking over on the Eastenders set but they have been making some very interesting casting choices over the past few months. First, we were surprised to learn that Danny Dyer had been cast as the new landlord of the Queen Vic pub. Then we were even more shocked to hear that Busted star Matt Willis had joined the show. Now another surprising casting choice has been made.
Former The Only Way Is Essex star Mark Wright has enjoyed a successful career since leaving the hit reality television series, making his own reality shows, doing some television presenting and enjoying some radio work. However, Mark has made it obvious on a number of occasions that he would love to get into acting, even suggesting he could be a future James Bond.
Well it looks like Mark Wright has taken his biggest step yet to becoming 007, by being cast as a new character in Eastenders, one which will see him on a collision course with Danny Dyer. It is claimed that Mark will play the role of a former lover of Danny's wife, who has come to try to win back his former lover, which does not go down too well with Dyer.
Following the news that Mark Wright will join the Eastenders cast, there have now been suggestions that it will not be too long before we see his fiance, former Coronation Street star Michelle Keegan, also joining the cast of Eastenders. Watch this space.
