    EastEnders fans were quick to spot a hunky actor from Les Misérables make his debut in the BBC One soap opera on Tuesday night.

    January 31 saw Jed arrive on Albert Square and look around Sonia's house as a prospective new house mate.

    But fans were quick to become flustered when they set eyes on the "fit" new resident in Walford, played by Bradley Jaden.

    Some fans even recognised him from hit musical Les Misérables and were quick to flock to Twitter.

    "Weird to think I saw Jed in Les Mis as Javert," penned one fan, when they realised where the Jed star had popped up once before.

    While others swooned over the latest addition to the soap.

    "Can Sonia give her new lodger, Jed, a very long term lease please?" asked one.

    "Ooh hello who's Sonia's new lodger," added another.

    A third then penned: "Oooof Sonia – we like Jed. Give him the room. Jed looks like an ideal lodger."

    While a fourth added: "Hello @BradleyJaden Sonia's eyes lit up lol."

    And a fifth said: "Jed is fit."

    Bradley is best-known for his Les Misérables: The Staged Concert at the Sondheim Theatre.

    And prior to that, the hunky actor appeared as Enjolras in the Staged Concert at the Gielgud Theatre in 2019.

    As well as Les Mis, he has portrayed Fiyero in Wicked at the Apollo Victoria Theatre, as well as popping up in Ghost the Musical on UK Tour and Shrek The Musical at Theatre Royal Drury Lane.

    And aside from his soap stint in EastEnders, avid TV viewers might recognise him from a short stint in Emmerdale, or popping up on Britain's Got Talent.
