The former 'EastEnders' star - who was known for playing rapist Dean Wicks in the BBC One soap - will take on the role of Warehouse Picker Fletch when the second installment of the six-part drama returns to screens.

Speaking to The Sun newspaper about the upcoming series, executive producer, Danny Brocklehurst, said: "I have loved creating a new web of intrigue, secrecy and mayhem for a range of new characters, which will be brought to life by a truly fantastic and talented cast.

"The new series promises more humour, heartache and shock revelations as very ordinary people find themselves in the most desperate of situations."

The 28-year-old actor will star alongside 'Waterloo Road's Angela Griffin, 'Game of Thrones' star Joel Fry and former Hear'Say singer Noel Sullivan in the forthcoming series.

Filming for the second series, which was confirmed in December last year, has already kicked off in Cardiff, Wales, and will follow a similar structure to the previous installment as it delves into the lives of each character before unveiling their dark secrets in each episode.

'Ordinary Lies', which previously starred Jo Joyner and Michelle Keegan, is to return to screens later this year.
