'EastEnders' Gary Lucy: 'Danny Pennant isn't what you think'

By
EastEnders star Gary Lucy has said that his character Danny Pennant's sexuality is "complicated".

Danny seems to be taking a big interest in Janine Butcher (Charlie Brooks) when he returns to Walford next week, which infuriates her estranged husband Michael Moon (Steve John Shepherd).

While Danny's intentions aren't clear, fans know that he was at the centre of a love triangle with Syed Masood and Christian Clarke last year.

Lucy told Soaplife of the new storyline: "When he turned up last time at the restaurant, he picked up on Janine and now he's come back to tell her that he'd like to help her with her investments.

"He's got his eye on Janine. But whether or not that is something that will develop romantically, we'll have to wait and see.

"He isn't what you think he is. That's the great thing about Danny. Nothing is ever as it seems with him. Michael is relieved that Danny's gay, but you never know, he might have that smile wiped off his face. Danny is a complicated character as far as his sexuality goes."

While Danny was initially introduced as a guest last year, he is now a regular character for the soap.

Lucy added: "I've got a long-term contract so I'm around for a while."
