'EastEnders' Chucky Venn teases Ray's son shock

By
EastEnders newcomer Chucky Venn has promised that his character Ray Dixon will strive to be a good father to his son Morgan.

As announced late last year, the former Footballers' Wives star has joined the cast of the Walford soap to play Morgan's biological dad.

Ray used to be in a relationship with Morgan's mum Bianca Butcher (Patsy Palmer), but currently has no idea that the youngster exists. However, next week's episodes see him discover the truth when Whitney Dean (Shona McGarty) tracks him down.

Venn told All About Soap of his new role: "He's a former Army man. Serving in the forces taught him discipline and how to handle himself in certain situations. He's a noble individual who'd take his parental responsibilities very seriously - if he knew he had a child, that is!"

Revealing how Ray reacts when he discovers he has a son, the actor replied: "He's in complete disbelief about it. He wants to see his secret child straight away, and immediately asks Whitney where Morgan is. Ray is a man of principles and wants to honour his parental duties to the end, no matter what.

"Regardless of the obstacles that lie in his way, Ray will acknowledge his responsibilities towards his family and he will deal with them to the very best of his ability."

EastEnders airs Ray's first scenes on Tuesday at 7.30pm on BBC One.
