Kellie Bright, star of Nineties sitcom The Upper Hand and the film Ali G Indahouse, is to take her new position as Landlady behind the bar of The Queen Vic , along with Danny Dyer as the the new Landlord.
Couple Mick (Dyer) and Linda (Bright) will be the first family to arrive and immediately take over the pub since the start of the BBC One soap. But expect Dyer to drop his bad boy image as Mick is really a bit of a softie who loves his wife, his children, his dog, and the monarchy and thinks nothing of throwing on Linda’s pink dressing gown and cooking the family breakfast. The couple have been together since they were teenagers and are a tight family unit – Linda appears to follow in the footsteps of former landlady Peggy Mitchell (Barbara Windsor) and despite a fluffy exterior has a core of steel.
