He’s the Blue band member who turned into a naughty boy in the Celebrity Big Brother house a few years back but now Lee Ryan is going to be back on our TV screens as he has landed a role in Eastenders.
Lee will arrive on the square as heartbreaker “Woody” Woodward temporarily but depending on if the viewers like his character he will stay longer.
Insider has said:
“We really hope viewers take to him.”
Talking about joining the soap Lee said on Thursday:
“I’m so excited to be part of the show. Woody is the best role I could have wished to play. He’s a brilliant character, and it’s clear he’s been leading a full and colourful life.“I can’t wait for people to see what he’s like for themselves. Everyone at EastEnders has been so welcoming. I know some of the cast already so I’m sure we’re going to have a lot of fun.”
Executive Producer Sean O’Connor said:
“I’m delighted to welcome Lee Ryan to Walford as ‘Woody’ Woodward. Woody is a man who has worked hard and played hard in bars, clubs and pubs around the world and has finally decided to put down some roots.
We shall see how Lee gets on on the show.
