In recent months, there have been a number of exits in EastEnders, including the likes of Stuart Highway (Ricky Champ), Dana Monroe (Barbara Smith) and Peter Beale (Dayle Hudson). But another cast member is soon going to be welcomed to Walford and he will be bringing some trouble to Sam Mitchell’s (Kim Medcalf) door. Here’s everything there is to know about actor Nick Nevern and who he is going to play.

WARNING: This article contains spoilers from EastEnders.

Who is new EastEnders star Nick Nevern?

Actor Nick Nevern is going to be joining the cast of EastEnders as Sam Mitchell’s ex-boyfriend Don.

Nevern has previously appeared in the soap in 2008 as a character called Rennie.

He has also been in Rise of the Footsoldier, Vendetta, Fault Lines, Twist, The Hooligan Factory and Motherland.

The 41-year-old will be in EastEnders for a short stint from next week, making Sam’s life a lot more complicated.

Sam is facing more financial issues as her family cut her off and she is struggling with debt.

One of Nevern’s first scenes as Don will take place in the Slater household as Kat (Jessie Wallace) is shocked to find him in their kitchen.

Sam is confused by his arrival and tries to dig herself out of a mess by telling Don that she still loves him.

He helps her financially, much to her relief, but quickly makes their situation even more awkward.

Don puts on an extravagant display to show his feelings for Sam to the other residents of Albert Square.

Sam is bewildered when he then gets down on one knee and proposes.

She later drops some major news on Don when they are alone together at Peggy’s.

Executive producer Chris Clenshaw did previously reveal that a face from Sam’s past would return to haunt her.

He told Digital Spy: “Sam’s been on screen for quite some time now and is causing a lot of trouble.

“She’s got an agenda and she’s a slightly different Sam – she’s ruthless.

“We find out a little bit more when we meet someone from her past in Spain, this autumn as well.”

But will Sam accept Don’s proposal and if so, will she go through with the wedding?

Sam Mitchell returned to EastEnders last April after living in Spain for several years.

She is portrayed by 48-year-old actress Kim Medcalf as Phil Mitchell’s (Steve McFadden) younger sister.

Sam was previously played by actress Danniella Westbrook before leaving for good in 2016.

EastEnders continues four nights a week at 7.30pm on BBC One.
