The BBC has released photos of musician-turned-actor Matt Willis' upcoming EastEnders debut.

Warning: spoiler alert!

Willis plays Luke Riley, the boyfriend of returning character Stacey Branning (Lacey Turner).

He makes his debut on the soap on BBC One and RTÉ One on Thursday February 13.

The BBC has said of Willis' character: "Currently working hard in the city, Luke is determined to build a secure life for him and his family but as drama always seems to follow Stacey wherever she goes, things will not be plain sailing for the duo.

"Fans will love Matt's character but he can't last long because of his other commitments to [band] McBusted.

"Think weeks rather than months on the show when he comes on screen."
