EastEnders Spoilers: Busted singer Matt Willis to play the role of Stacey Slater’s boyfriend, Luke!
It’s been revealed today that Busted singer Matt Willis is set to join EastEnders for a short stint to play the role of Luke, Stacey Branning’s boyfriend.
Luke is an ambitious young man who is deeply in love and devoted to his girlfriend. Currently working hard in the city, Luke is determined to build a secure life for him and his family but as drama always seems to follow Stacey wherever she goes, things will not be plain sailing for the duo…
Speaking of joining EastEnders Matt Willis 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!”
Executive Producer Dominic Treadwell-Collins added “I’ve always loved Matt and it will be a real treat for viewers to watch him and Lacey together on screen as part of her return to the Square. Luke gives as good as he gets, so is a great foil to Stacey. Pity she’s been lying to him since the day she met him…”
Best known for being part of the award winning band, Busted, who have now merged with McFly to form McBusted, Matt has also appeared in many television and theatre shows including Wicked, Footloose, Miss Marple and more recently Birds of a Feather.
Matt will film his first scenes this week and will appear on screen early next year.
