EastEnders: Ben Mitchell gets up close and personal with newcomer Paul Coker

Pam and Les's grandson arrives in Walford in an upcoming episode


Les and Pam’s grandson Paul (Jonny Labey) arrives in Albert Square in the coming weeks and quickly makes an impression on Lola (Danielle Harold) by accidentally knocking her over in the street.


Ben (Harry Reid) immediately comes to Lola’s defence, but Paul plays down the incident and introduces himself to the group. It doesn’t take long for Lola to come round to Paul, but does he have his eyes on someone else?

Fromt the looks of this trailer, we’d say that was a big yes!

“I am overjoyed to have been given the role of Paul Coker and am thrilled to be joining the show at such a prevalent time as it marks its 30th anniversary,” Labey said last month when his signing was announced. “I know I’ve got a lot of work to do to live up to the talent I shall be working with, but I have never felt more welcome and cannot wait to get started.”
