EastEnders: Newbie Gary Lucy’s character Danny will be gay and he’ll ruffle Christian and Syed’s feathers!
Fans of EastEnders may recall that a few weeks ago, we reported that former Footballers’ Wives star Gary Lucy – who’s also starred on The Bill and Hollyoaks – is joining the cast of the show as city banker, Danny Pennant.

“But they’re soon disappointed when it turns out he’s not interested in women.
“He’ll ruffle a few feathers and Christian and Syed’s relationship will be tested…”
