Lee MacDonald is set to make his Walford debut next week.

Lee - who played iconic character Zammo in the hit 80s drama – takes on the character of Terry and is set to clash with pub landlord Mick Carter (Danny Dyer) as they go head to head in a radio competition to win Spice Girls tickets.

While Mick’s wife Linda worries about their young son Ollie’s behaviour, he assumes her mood is because she missed out on tickets to see the 90s girl group live on stage.

Wanting to cheer her up, Mick enters a competition to win tickets and – with Tina’s help – is thrilled when he makes it to the second round of the contest.

But Mick’s joy is short-lived. As Shirley and Tina enjoy helping Mick prepare for the next round of the competition, he’s left feeling flat when he loses to another - Terry.

The Queen Vic's owner resolves to hunt Terry down and plead with his better nature to give him the tickets for Linda.

But as he tries to track Terry down, he’s led on a wild goose chase.

When Mick finally finds Terry, he refuses to part with the tickets.

Later Linda (Kellie Bright) questions Tina about Mick’s odd behaviour, and Tina reveals all about the concert tickets and the competition.

A touched Linda repays Mick in her own way, by singing his favourite song at Tina’s leaving party.

But everyone is stunned when Terry arrives at the pub.

Will he hand over the tickets?

It was revealed back in April that Lee would be making a cameo appearance in the BBC soap, 32 years after appearing on Grange Hill.

Lee has been running a locksmith and key-cutting business since quitting TV.

He said at the time: “ I am absolutely chuffed to bits and so excited to be briefly joining the cast of EastEnders.

"I can’t say too much yet but watch this space. Top banana!”
