Brian Conley, the popular star of stage and screen, is joining the cast of ‘EastEnders‘ it has been announced.

Conley will head to Albert Square next month playing Terry Cant, Sonia’s (Natalie Cassidy) long lost father. Sonia, feeling lonely and missing her daughter Bex, searched for her lost father’s name online last year to no avail. Having given up any hope of finding her dad, Terry’s arrival in Walford will be a huge shock for her.

Terry is the ultimate people pleaser and will be quick to charm everyone on the Square and make himself at home but just how will Sonia react when he turns up in Walford?

On his arrival to Albert Square Brian says “As you can imagine being a Londoner and now being part of ‘EastEnders’ is such an incredible moment for me. I know for sure my dad’s looking down from above and saying “Good on yer son!” It was always his favourite programme. So in so many ways it really is an honour to be part of such an iconic show and to be working with an incredibly talented team on camera and off. I cannot wait to order my first pint at The Queen Vic.”

We had been searching for some time but the moment we met Brian, we knew instantly we had found our man. Brian’s a talented performer whose charm, wit and charisma are exactly the qualities we want for Terry. We’ve got some wonderful stories in store for him and can’t wait for the audience to see Brian bring him to life.”

Conley is a star of both stage and screen with a television career spanning four decades, he most famously hosted ‘The Brian Conley Show’ and starred in the popular comedy drama ‘The Grimleys’. He has also been a force on the West End, playing the lead in musicals such as ‘Me and My Girl’, ‘Chitty Chitty Bang Bang’, ‘Hairspray’, ‘Oliver!’, ‘Barnum’ and more recently ‘9 To 5 The Musical’ and ‘A Christmas Carol’ at the Dominion Theatre London.
