Little is known about which characters Danny will be interacting with, but show chiefs have teased that the charmer "oozes sex appeal" and has a "compelling charisma".

An EastEnders statement said: "With his irresistible charm and luring persona, Danny is desired and envied by both men and women - girls want to be seen with him and boys want to be him.

"He will inevitably create controversial encounters and his provocative and lustful nature is bound to land him in trouble."

Along with Footballers' Wives, Lucy's previous acting credits include regular roles on The Bill and Hollyoaks.
