BBC soap to get new gay character
EastEnders, the most-watched programme on the BBC, is to get a new gay character in the New Year.
The gay brother of character Jane Beale will arrive in Albert Square in early 2008.
The soap's executives were inspired to include a gay character after a similar move by ITV's Coronation St proved to be a big hit with viwers.
The Mirror reported: "The bosses at EastEnders have seen how well Antony Cotton does as Sean in Corrie.
"He's become incredibly popular with viewers so they've decided it's time to have a gay character of their own.
"However, he's not going to be as camp as Sean. This guy's going to be very suave and a real charmer."
The long-running soap is no stranger to gay and lesbian storylines.
It was the first in the UK to feature a gay male couple, and last year lead character Sonia Fowler had a lesbian affair.

lol... I really don't watch much TV in general... will be interesting to see their take on it tho... will they make a big thing about the character being gay or will they let him blend in like Sean from Corrie.
