EastEnders Lee RyanIt’s going to be a long, hot, steamy summer in Albert Square: Lee Ryan and his six-pack have just re-signed to hit soap, “EastEnders,” for at least another year! Fans of Ryan’s character Woody Woodward have cause for celebration, as the former Blue band member was initially slated as a temp cast member.

What changed? Ryan came on like a house on fire, and show bosses as well as viewers stood up and took immediate notice of the 33-year-old singer’s acting talents. His acting ability, as well as his enormous popularity with fans of the hit BBC One sudser have resulted in Ryan receiving a one-year contract.

What does Ryan think of his newly minted status as a series regular? He couldn’t be happier! The hunky actor is “delighted,” at the prospect of being a full-time Walford resident.

In an interview with Closer magazine, the actor said, “It was a dream come true when I landed the role so I am thrilled that this has now turned into something much bigger. It has been a surreal experience walking down the road and having people shouting ‘Woody’ at me but I cannot wait to get back in the Square to see what trouble he will cause this time round.”
