EastEnders cast Derek Branning's daughter

EastEnders bad boy Derek Branning is in for a big surprise in the coming weeks, as his long-lost daughter Alice arrives in Walford.

Jasmyn Banks is set to play the part of Alice, who arrives in Albert Square searching for answers from the father she has never met.

Speaking to The Sun newspaper about her new role Jasmyn said: "I've been a fan of EastEnders forever and am thrilled to be cast as a Branning. It's a privilege to be working alongside Jamie and I can't wait to find out what's in store for Alice."

EastEnders' executive producer Lorraine Newman added: "Jasmyn's a great actress and we are delighted to have her join the cast as Alice Branning."

"Alice will help us glimpse a softer side to Derek and, being part of the Branning clan, there's a huge amount of history for the pair to draw upon which gives us great potential for the future."

EastEnders fans will see Alice's first scenes next month.
