Comedian Terry Alderton has been cast as a new love interest for Bianca Butcher (Patsy Palmer) on Eastenders.

Alderton will play the role of Cockney cabbie Terry Spraggan, who will be a regular character on the BBC soap.

In a new storyline, Bianca spends time away in Manchester before returning with Terry in tow.

Terry has been described as a "bloke's bloke" who has plenty in common with Bianca as he is also a parent.

His arrival will mean some happiness for Bianca, as she embarks on her first proper relationship since her husband Ricky departed, show bosses have promised.

Alderton commented on the news: "I'm still in shock, it's all happened so fast. I can't wait to get started and I love the fact I don't have to change my name!"

Stand-up comic Alderton will begin filming with Eastenders in September.
