McPopstar-by-day, actor-by-night, showbiz all-rounder Matt Willis has taken on another TV role (aside from his part in ITV’s ‘Bird Of A Feather’ revival, that is), this time in ‘EastEnders’.

Although married to Emma Willis in real life, Matt will pretend to be Stacey Branning’s naïve new squeeze on the telly soap, ambitious city boy Luke, because he really is that great at acting.

Theatre school grad Matt says: “I am so thrilled to be a part of such an iconic show. I grew up watching ‘EastEnders’ so this is really exciting for me!”

Willis will apparently, thinks the Mirror, make his first Albert Square appearance in the new year, perhaps even January. He can’t stay for long, mind, if he’s to honour all those McBusted tour dates he possibly wishes he hadn’t agreed to.
