In a completely unexpected development The BBC has announced former PM David Cameron is to make his TV acting debut in top BBC soap EastEnders.
Reprising the role of James Wilmott-Brown and perfectly cast as a feckless toff, Mr Cameron’s character will become a thorn in the side of Mick Carter with the gripping denouement of their storyline slated for the traditional and much-anticipated Christmas Day blockbusting episode.
One EastEnders script consultant commented: ‘We got the idea when Danny called David a ‘twat’ live on TV and thought what great conflict we could create on the show. We expect ratings to soar from November when David’s scenes start to go out.’
Meanwhile another programme insider said: ‘Danny is looking forward to meeting Mr Cameron, who, if he knows what’s good for him, will keep his neck well and truly wound-in, or he’s liable to get a right good slap off of Danny if he tries coming it large with any old posh “Tory Boy” bollocks.’
Speaking to reporters Mr Cameron said: ‘Well you know, I can’t wait to get my shirtsleeves rolled up for this, just like I used to do when as Prime Minister I would visit hospitals pretending to care about the future of the NHS.’
