Burn guest stars in EastEnders
There's an explosive special edition of EastEnders coming up in a few weeks' time, and not only does it boast a gripping storyline, but there's also a familiar face cropping up.
Burn Gorman, who recently starred as randy medic Owen Harper in Doctor Who spin-off Torchwood, features as groom-to-be Jed. He is found by a moping Kevin (Phil Daniels), who is contemplating the state of his life after the revelation he's not Deano (Matt Di Angelo) or Carly's (Kellie Shirley) biological father.
However, Jed tells his new acquaintance he's been stitched up by his pals on his stag night and has to get back home. The kind-hearted Walford resident wonders whether to give Jed some money, but before he has the chance, the other man scarpers with Kevin's bag.
Unfortunately, the thief doesn't get the chance to gloat - the bus he leaps onto crashes into a lorry, and tragedy ensues. It's not Burn's only foray into soapland. The rising star has previously appeared in Coronation Street, way back in 1998. Since then, he has featured in TV hits such as Bleak House, and had a small role on the big screen in Layer Cake.
The hour-long edition of EastEnders airs on Friday, March 9.
