EastEnders newcomer Ellen Thomas, who plays Claudette, has promised viewers can expect to see her mysterious alter-ego’s on-screen-family introduced.
Currently, little is known about Thomas’ character – other than that she is Les Coker’s mistress whom he has been arranging secret meetings with behind wife Pam’s back.
Speaking to the Daily Star Sunday, Thomas said: “This character is the bee’s knees. She’s got bottle. We’re filming scenes to introduce her family now. Claudette is a foster mother, she’s fostered children for the last 30 years.
“She’s fostered the kind of children nobody else wants – tough cookies. Now any challenge she has, she just calls them and they’re in there.”
