EastEnders star Chucky Venn has told fans of the show that there is a "big surprise" in store for his character, Ray Dixon.

Warning: spoiler alert!

Speaking to Inside Soap, Venn said: "I've been told by the bosses that there's something interesting around the corner for Ray, and to watch this space for a big surprise coming his way.

"We know that Ray's a pretty likeable fella, but there is a darker side to him as well. You have to remember that this guy used to be in the Army, so maybe we'll explore the consequences of that experience.

"There's lots coming up - I just can't divulge it all!"

2013 begins for Ray with a break-up, as he decides to end his relationship with Kim Fox (Tameka Empson) after he kissed her sister Denise (Diane Parish).

Venn said: "Ray reaches a point where he needs to come up for a breath of air, as there's only so much of Kim's heightened personality he can bear.

"Did Ray go for the wrong sister? Who knows? He probably has more in common with Denise than he ever had with Kim."
