MANDEM ON The Wall star Joivan Wade has landed a role on long-running BBC soap, Eastenders.
The YouTube favourite, who has also had roles in Doctor Who and BBC sitcom Walliams & Friend, will play Denise Fox’s step-son Jordan Johnson and son of killer ‘pastor’ Lucas Johnson and will be making his way to Albert Square in explosive style.
“It’s been difficult keeping it a secret. Albert Square I’m on my way,” the 22-year-old wrote on Instagram.
“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.
