Julia Hills as Morag on EastEnders

EastEnders welcomes a new face to the Square tonight in the form of larger-than-life choir leader Morag, who is set to ruffle some feathers as the festive season approaches. Morag will be seen attempting to lead Walford’s Christmas choir to victory in a local competition, but her bossy and boastful ways soon end up riling some local residents.

The character of Morag is played by Julia Hills, who is best known for playing man hungry Rona Harris in the BBC1 sitcom 2point4 Children, which originally ran for eight series between 1991 and 1999. The comedy, which charted the daily tribulations of the Porter clan, was watched by up to 14 million viewers in its heyday.

Other screen credits include her role opposite Kevin McNally in BBC sitcom Dad (also penned by 2point4 Children writer Andrew Marshall), C4 sketch show Who Dares Wins and Outnumbered.
