Three new characters related to Mitch Baker will join EastEnders this summer.

EastEnders has confirmed that three new characters related to Mitch Baker (Roger Griffiths) will join the soap in the coming months.

Omar Lye-Fook will play Avery Baker, the charming older brother of Mitch who has not really spoken to him in years but suddenly re-enters his life harbouring a secret.

Avery will be joined by son Felix (Matthew Morrison) and adopted son Finlay (Ashley Byam), who are complete opposites but always have each other's backs.

"The Baker Family bring a fresh, fierce, fun and exciting energy to the Square," said EastEnders executive producer Chris Clenshaw.

"Felix and Finlay are two very different firecrackers and, yes, these brothers fall out, take the mick and challenge each other, but none of that compares to their unswerving love and loyalty they have for one another.

"They may be charming young men, full of sass, swagger and strength but these brothers are Bakers and, like their father, Avery, have their own unique way of surviving.

"Omar, Matthew and Ashley all bring star quality to EastEnders and we're excited to see them bring Avery, Felix and Finlay to life.

"The Baker family are the just the start of some new faces landing in Walford later this year - so watch this space..."

The actors have already begun filming and will be seen on screen for the first time later this summer.
