Fresh from the stage at this year’s Edinburgh Festival, comedian Terry Alderton will be joining the cast of EastEnders as the new taxi-driving love interest of Bianca Butcher, played by Patsy Palmer.
Having been away in Manchester, a smitten Bianca returns to Albert Square in the autumn, with new beau Terry Spraggan in tow.
On his namesake role, Terry, said: “I’m still in shock, it’s all happened so fast. I can’t wait to get started and I love the fact I don’t have to change my name!”
An EastEnders spokesperson said: “Terry is your typical Cockney cabbie. Definitely a bloke’s bloke, he’s never short of an entertaining story to tell about who he’s had in his cab the night before.”
Dad Terry is certainly going to put the spring back into Bianca’s step, having not had a serious relationship since divorcing Ricky, for the second time, in 2010, and whose recent attempts at dating have not gone well.

Terry Alderton has made it through to the final of Let's Dance For Sport Relief following a last-minute decision by judge Keith Lemon. Graham Norton said Alderton’s routine was ‘physical poetry’, joking that: ‘His femininity was so strong that in the opening line-up I couldn’t tell which one was Terry, could you?’ Greg Davis said Alderton was his favourite act of the night, saying: ‘The dance was phenomenal. The facial expression terrified me. I thought we were going to have to get a paramedic for a little bit.’
You can see Terry in the final on 17th March

"Terry, I was completely blown away by the scope and scale of the work you are doing. It's wonderful. Much like being strapped into a very fast car with an extremely talented racing driver, who informs you that he does not believe in braking and he is completely mad. The further you go the more exciting and dangerous the show becomes. You are treading your own bewilderingly complex labyrinth and, discovering your inner genius; probably sat on a toadstool smoking a hookah. It's a privilege to watch you find it. Well f**king done. On, on you bald fool."
