The hit show described his character as: "An unpredictable troublemaker who lives life in the fast lane.

"A lone wolf, Zack had a difficult childhood that has left him determined to never rely on anyone or become too attached."

And by the looks of things he's certainly going to catch the eyes of all the women in the Square if he dresses in a suit every day.

The star was certainly dressed to impressed as he filmed for the soap last week.

James looked dapper in a smart black suit, open white shirt to show off his chest and some black shiny shoes.

The crew styled his hair into slick side quiff and completed the look with some black sunglasses.

The soap revealed that James' character will definitely "ruffle a few feathers when he arrives."

Londoner James – who has starred in the likes of Call The Midwife, Silent Witness and the soon-to-be released Blank Shores – can't wait to get stuck into his upcoming storylines.

Speaking out about his upcoming debut, he revealed: "I’m thrilled to be joining EastEnders.

"As a born and bred Londoner myself, I can’t wait to bring my experience of a place I love and know to such a well-respected long running show, with such iconic characters.

"Zack certainly has a very complicated past and there is a real depth to him that I can’t wait to explore."

And he's not the only one excited about his new venture.

Executive producer Jon Sen said: "James is a wonderful addition to the EastEnders cast, playing the charming rogue Zack Hudson.

"We are all excited to see James bring the character to life and there’s plenty of drama in store for him – trouble is always just round the corner."

Not much else is known about Zack so fans will have to tune in to the show to find out more.

Meanwhile, fans were left in stitches when Ben Mitchell took a swipe at his dad's new love interest last night.

The mechanic didn't holdback when Phil told him that he's been sleeping with Kat.

"Talk about scraping the bottom of the barrel, state of it," he shouted as his dad tried to justify his decision.

Viewers were also left disgusted when Dotty Cotton tricked Tiffany into flirting with sleazy punters at the club.

EastEnders airs Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday nights on BBC One and is available for catch up on BBC iPlayer
