EastEnders fans can soon expect tensions to mount when Mitch Baker (Roger Griffiths)’s estranged brother Avery (Omar Lye-Fook) unexpectedly appears in his life.

The charmer wore an earring in each ear and wore a pair of chic blue suede loafers.

Musician and actor Omar Lye-Fook, MBE plays Avery Baker, Mitch’s charismatic older sibling, who appears on the scene along with his two sons.

Almost always on the cusp of causing trouble, Avery couldn’t be more different from his little brother, and his arrival this summer will instantly grab attention.

Avery is joined by his children, Felix and Finlay, who are played by Matthew Morrison (Felix) and Ashley Byam (Finlay).

The younger of the two brothers, bigger than life, Felix plunges into life in Albert Square, but with his quirky and candid honesty, he’s sure to stir up some drama along the way.

The older half-brother Finlay has a different biological father, but was raised by Avery shortly after birth.

Finlay has sailed through life with his sassy charm, but will wake up when he begins life in Walford.

Despite being polar opposites, Felix and Finlay form a united front and are always behind each other.

Although Mitch loves his nephews dearly, we can honestly say that he has a complicated relationship with his brother after years of not speaking to him and that Avery’s unexpected arrival will cause problems for Mitch.

Mitch realizes there must be a reason why Avery suddenly comes back into his life and is determined to get to the bottom of what’s going on and find out what secret Avery is hiding…

Chris Clenshaw, Executive Producer, EastEnders said: ‘The Baker Family brings a fresh, fierce, fun and exciting energy to the Square.

Felix and Finlay are two very different firecrackers and yes, these brothers fall out, take the mick and challenge each other, but none of that compares to the unwavering love and loyalty they have for each other.

“They may be charming young men, full of boldness, swagger and strength, but these brothers are Bakers and, like their father, Avery, they have their own unique way of surviving.

“Omar, Matthew and Ashley are all bringing star quality to EastEnders and we are delighted to see them bring Avery, Felix and Finlay to life. The Baker family is just the beginning of some new faces landing in Walford later this year – so keep an eye out for this space…”

When he took on the role of Avery, Omar said: “I’ve been watching EastEnders since I was in school, so it’s such a surreal experience to be part of the show now.

“I’m having so much fun and it’s an honor to work with this incredible cast.”

Matthew Morrison, who will play Felix, added: “It’s an honor to be part of such a legendary show that I grew up watching.

“It hasn’t really sunk in yet, and I don’t think it ever will. I’ve got a ball to master Felix and can’t wait for you all to meet him!’

Ashley Byam, who will play Finlay, said: “I’m very excited to be joining the Square. Like many people, I grew up with EastEnders; it was almost an unspoken family tradition.

My mom and I sat there together and watched so many incredible and iconic storylines. So to now be part of this classic British TV drama is an honor, and I am truly grateful. I can’t wait for everyone to meet Finlay and see what’s in store for him.’
