You might think the reinvention of EastEnders had gone far enough with the news that movie hard man Danny Dyer is to join the BBC soap. But now comes news that former Busted musician and I'm a Celebrity winner Matt Willis is to do a "short stint" on the show as Stacey Branning's boyfriend. Willis said: "I am so thrilled to be a part of such an iconic show. I grew up watching EastEnders so this is really exciting for me." Executive producer Dominic Treadwell-Collins said: "I've always loved Matt and it will be a real treat for viewers to watch him and Lacey together on screen as part of her return to the Square. Luke gives as good as he gets, so is a great foil to Stacey. Pity she's been lying to him since the day she met him." Willis has a busy 2014 lined up: aside from touring with new group McBusted, he has joined the cast of ITV sitcom Birds of a Feather. All Monkey wants to know is: will he be leading singalongs of Air Hostess, Crashed The Wedding or You Said No in the Queen Vic?
