Kathy Beale's husband will be an 'EastEnders villian like no other'
'EastEnders' will see "an EastEnders villain like no other" in Kathy Beale's third husband Gavin.
The TV show's executive producer Dominic Treadwell-Collins has hinted at what may unfold when the BBC soap legend - played by Gillian Taylforth - returns in the coming months, along with her husband, played by Paul Nicholas.
Dominic said: "If everything works out, and I hope it will, Gavin is going to be an 'EastEnders' villain like no other. He's going to be modern, complex, and have a little a foot in the past and a foot in the present."
While no return date has been given for Kathy, she is expected to make an appearance late in the summer, having already surprised fans by popping up in the live episode in February, which 11 million people tuned in for to find out who Lucy Beale's killer was.
In the end, it was revealed that her younger brother, Bobby, was the killer, and Dominic has insisted that this story will "kick off massively" again in the coming months.
Speaking to the Mirror Online, the 37-year-old TV producer said: "We rested the story for a little bit and let everyone breathe. But that kicks off massively over the summer with a big arrest that will take us through into September...and a few old faces will turn up as well."
