Lee Ryan, who rose to fame in boy band Blue, has just been announced as the latest addition to the EastEnders family.

The news was announced on the show’s official Twitter account and unsurprisingly, there was a major reaction.

Have a look at what people had to say about the decision to cast Lee in the role of “The Square’s latest bad boy”.

Speaking about his latest endeavour, Lee said:

“I am so excited to be part of the show. Woody is the best role I could have wished to play. He’s a brilliant character, and it’s clear he’s been leading a full and colourful life. I can’t wait for people to see what he’s like for themselves. Everyone at EastEnders has been so welcoming. I know some of the cast already so I’m sure we’re going to have a lot of fun”.

Woody will arrive on the soap soon and there’s no doubt that he will cause havoc…
