Vanessa's daughter cast in 'EastEnders'

By
EastEnders bosses have cast a daughter for feisty Albert Square newcomer Vanessa Gold.

Actress Kylie Babbington joins the Walford soap as Jodie Gold around the same time as her mother, played by Zöe Lucker.

Jodie first appears in the fictional London district in search of her mum and her arrival doesn't go unnoticed by Darren Miller (Charlie G. Hawkins), who takes an immediate shine to her.

With a big heart, an infectious smile and a personality to match, Darren falls head-over-heels in love and quickly begins wooing her with the Miller charm.

Executive producer Bryan Kirkwood exclusively told Digital Spy: "I'm really excited about Kylie taking on the role of Jodie. She brings yet more fresh energy to the show - she's a ray of sunshine."



The love of Darren's life Libby Fox (Belinda Owusu) rapidly ended their long-term romance upon learning of his one-night stand with Heather Trott (Cheryl Fergison) - and their son George Michael.

Mother and daughter duo Jodie and Vanessa make their first appearance in Walford next month. Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
