EastEnders actor Ace Bhatti has commended his cast mates for their efforts to welcome him into the fold.

Bhatti, who portrays Dr Yusef Khan in the soap, made his first appearance in November 2010 as the former husband of Zainab Masood (Nina Wadia).

Speaking to Inside Soap, the actor revealed that he is thrilled to be a regular on the square.

"They're so welcoming. There's a lot of joking about. I'm having a great time at EastEnders - it's a real privilege to be here," he said.

Bhatti also revealed that, although they are bitter rivals on-screen, he and Nitin Ganatra, who portrays Masood Ahmed, are actually old friends.

"I've known Nitin and Nina Wadia, who plays Zainab, for a very long time and we've always got on very well," he explained.

"Nitin and I play tense scenes together so it's nice that we can have a laugh afterwards."

Bhatti recently admitted that he is "grateful" for his current role. Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
