EastEnders star Modupe Adeyeye has predicted that Fatboy Chubb could be a good match for her character Faith Olubunmi.

Faith was recently seen making a move on Fatboy (Ricky Norwood) on the main soap and they will continue to share scenes on the new series of EastEnders: E20, which launched yesterday.

EastEnders: E20 also sees Faith develop a crush on troubled Donnie Lester (Samuell Benta) while hiding out with him and Ava Bourne (Sophie Colquhoun) on Albert Square.

Adeyeye told Digital Spy: "Faith really likes Donnie. I think Donnie would like Faith too, but she gives away everything on a plate. She doesn't let you find anything out about her or keep anything back, she just puts it all out there."

Asked to name the better match for Faith, she replied: "I'd say Fatboy, because even though she brushes him off, Fatboy actually cares about Faith and wants to take care of her. But with Donnie, he's more interested in Ava, because she keeps things back and lets you find them in her. I think Donnie likes that a lot more."

Adeyeye also warned that there could be more tense scenes ahead between Faith and Ava after they got off on the wrong foot in yesterday's episode.

"Faith and Ava are two completely different people - they are so not alike," she said. "So that already is a reason for them not to get along, and it's very difficult for them to agree on things. They have different morals."

EastEnders: E20 bosses are releasing new episodes online each Tuesday, Thursday and Friday for the next five weeks.
