James Willmott-Brown will pay a visit to Albert Square this Friday – and it’s not long before he’s stepping foot in Kathy’s cafe. As EastEnders fans are well aware, the villainous Willmott-Brown has a dark history with the neighbourhood and with Kathy in particular, having raped her back in 1988.
Later this week, viewers will see Willmott-Brown return to the place he used to live. And although he doesn’t come face to face with anyone from his past, he does take the opportunity to check out the cafe while nobody is around.
As the head of the shadowy Weyland and co, the upper-class rotter plans to takeover the Square and run its residents out of business.
Working in conjunction with brother-in-law Hugo and offspring Fi, Luke and Josh, Willmott-Brown won’t think twice about destroying anyone and everything that gets in his way, including Kathy, who he holds responsible for ruining his life.
Of the upcoming drama, a show spokesperson said: “Family loyalties will be questioned, tested and exposed but one thing is for sure, with ruthless Willmott-Brown ruling the clan, the residents of Walford are in for a huge shock.”
