EastEnders character Tamwar Masood (Himesh Patel) is to star in an online miniseries on the soap's website.

Tamwar Tales - The Life of an Assistant Market Inspector will premiere online on Thursday July 25, with one episode a week for four weeks.

A show spokesperson said: "For the first time ever, we are able to hear what Tamwar is really thinking as he endures all that life throws at him - the excuses, teasing and daily hassles from his regular stallholders.

"He averts a security incident caused by Kim, encounters his dad fly-pitching, Harlem Shakes with Fatboy and then he meets Jean, where things take an unexpected turn..."

Actor Patel said: "It was really fun working on the four shorts. It was like taking a character that we know and putting him in a different genre. Viewers who are a fan of Tamwar will finally get a look inside his head."
