Swoon. Our teenage crush is back, and this time he's reincarnating himself in Albert Square
It’s time for all you Gary Lucy fans to come out of the woodwork (I know you’re out there).
Because guess what? The former Footballers’ Wives, The Bill and Hollyoaks star is set to star in EastEnders, as of September. Amaaaaaze.
It’s like we’re 15 all over again. Except hopefully Gary will be leaving his hair gel back in 2002.
When I heard the news, I thought, ‘this works’. I love a little bit of Gary, and Albert Square is the perfect place for the blue-eyed Essex actor.
He’s going to be playing a city banker called Danny Pennant, and is apparently going to be a bit of a naughty boy. As if he could play a nice guy?!
It’s all totally tacky and obvious when you think about it, but I reckon it was written in the stars that Gary should end up drinking in The Queen Vic. Can’t wait to meet you, Danny Pennant…
