Now it has emerged that Felix will be accompanied by his "fierce" drag alter ego Tara Misu, who promises to "stir things up" in the Square.
"I am blessed to have the opportunity to step into the heels of the fierce Tara Misu as part of my role on EastEnders," said Morrison.
"It's a privilege to represent the LGBTQIA+ community and to showcase the creative art of drag to both viewers at home and the residents of Walford."
