Sonia Fowler (played by Natalie Cassidy) has been struggling to find her purpose since daughter, Bex Fowler (Jasmine Armfield) left to travel around India. But, the BBC has announced Sonia is set to come face to face with someone from her past; her father. EastEnders fans will see Terry Cant, who is being played by Brian Conley, head to Albert Square next month. How is she going to react? 

Over the past few months, Sonia has been feeling incredibly lonely and this kick-started the need she felt to reconnect with her family. 

She initially searched for her father’s name last year online but had no luck in finding a match. 

Having given up hope of finding Terry, she is going to be stunned when he rocks up in her home town. 

Fans of the popular soap will soon learn, Terry is the ultimate people pleaser and is quick to charm everyone on the Square as he makes himself at home. 

Speaking about joining the infamous cast, Brian said: “As you can imagine being a Londoner and now being part of EastEnders is such an incredible moment for me. 

“I know for sure my dad’s looking down from above and saying ‘Good on yer son!’ It was always his favourite programme. 

“So in so many ways it really is an honour to be part of such an iconic show and to be working with an incredibly talented team on camera and off. 

“I cannot wait to order my first pint at The Queen Vic,” he added.

Jon Sen, the Executive Producer for EastEnders also commented: “We are delighted to welcome Brian to Albert Square. 

“We had been searching for some time but the moment we met Brian, we knew instantly we had found our man. 

“Brian’s a talented performer whose charm, wit and charisma are exactly the qualities we want for Terry. 

“We’ve got some wonderful stories in store for him and can’t wait for the audience to see Brian bring him to life.”
