EastEnders bosses have revealed that the actor who will be playing Kathy Beale’s husband Gavin is Paul Nicholas.
Earlier this year it was announced that iconic character Kathy Beale will be returning to Albert Square and with her will be estranged husband Gavin Sullivan.
Until now, we had no clue which lucky actor would be playing this new role, but excecutive producer Dominic Treadwell-Collins has confirmed that it will be Just Good Friends star Paul Nicholas.
Dominic commented: “We are thrilled that Paul has agreed to join our cast to play Gavin. So many British television viewers have grown up with Paul Nicholas so it’s brilliant to have him back on our screens, playing a major part in Kathy’s explosive return to the Square, while also holding the key to many more of the Square’s secrets”.
Speaking about his new role, Paul Nicholas said: “I am delighted to be joining the wonderful cast of EastEnders for what is going to be an exciting time ahead. I can’t wait to get started and see what’s in store for my character”. Neither can we Paul, neither can we!
