S Club 7’s Hannah is teasing her upcoming EastEnders role

All is not what it seems...

The former pop group singer says she wants her time on Albert Square to be extended.

Hannah Spearritt is due to arrive on the square this week and while she’s only expected to appear in two episodes, the actress says she hopes she gets to stick around for longer.

The former S Club 7 singer will play Karen Taylor’s younger sister, Kandice, on this Thursday’s double bill of episodes.

And while that’s all that is planned for the character thus far, Hannah says she’s open to more.

“It’s been really great to be involved in such an iconic show,” she told Digital Spy.

“I’m in for a short stint at the minute, but if it ended up being something bigger, that’s definitely something I’d be interested in.”

And what can we expect from Hannah’s character Kandice? Well, the actress says she’s going to be a fiesty one.

“Kandice is such a fun character to play. She’s really outspoken and abrasive, so she tells it like it is.

“There’s a lot of bad blood between Karen and Kandice, as they’re very different. But ultimately they are sisters, so they do love each other and there is a bond there that is unbreakable.”

We can’t wait to see Hannah’s debut on Thursday night’s episodes and here’s hoping she’ll be back for more.
