Poker storyline set for EastEnders
Tuesday, 21 August 2012
Poker is set to hit mainstream TV screens in the near future as dodgy Derek Branning takes on young Anthony Moon (played by Matt Lapinskas) in a high stakes game on soap gloomfest EastEnders.
Lapinskas, who is leaving the programme told Soaplife, "Joey manipulates Anthony into challenging Derek, which is a big mistake. I can't give too much away, but I can tell you that after going up against Derek, Anthony has no choice but to leave the Square."
This being TV of course, it will probably mean two horribly played hands with a royal flush eventually beating quad aces or something equally ridiculous.
We just hope it's a bit better than James Bond's clash with Le Chiffre in Casino Royale.
