“My bro @JoivanWade is in EASTENDERS PEOPLE!!! Get his name popping #JoivanWade,” his Mandem on the Wal co-star Percelle Scott wrote on Twitter.

“Coming into Eastenders is an absolute dream. Jordan is going through a very tough time and needs people in his corner but with a dad like Lucas will he be able to trust anyone? It is going to be brilliant to play him and I can’t wait to get started,” Joivan told The Mirror.
