THE Panesar brothers crash into Walford and immediately clash with Ben Mitchell in EastEnders next week.
Ben – who’s played by Max Bowden in the BBC soap – will be seen doing some dodgy dealings over coming episodes.
But they are set to catch up with him when Jags and Kheerat arrive on the Square and threaten him.
It soon transpires that Ben stole Kheerat’s car. Are they out for revenge?
It was announced in August that Walford would soon see three newcomers in the shape of the Panesar brothers.
Kheerat, Jags and Vinny, are set to cause quite the stir when they land on screens this autumn.
Eldest brother Kheerat, played by Jaz Deol, is a successful businessman who knows exactly what he wants and how to get it.
He leads and envious lifestyle and his younger brothers look up to him.
EastEnders’s executive producer Jon Sen said: “The Panesar family are set arrive this autumn and will bring their own unique blend of charm and chaos onto the Square.
“A British Asian family of Punjabi Sikh heritage, Kheerat, Jags and Vinny are three very different brothers who turn up in Walford looking to settle a score.”
“However, fate quickly takes a hand and they find themselves staying for good.
“We’re thrilled to be introducing this vibrant new family to Walford and to be sharing their stories.”
Jaz, who plays Kheerat, said: “I’m very proud and excited to be joining such an iconic show and bringing to life a character that is a reflection of the cultural background that I and many others come from in today’s modern Britain.”
He added: “I can’t wait to get started and for viewers to meet the Panesars.”
Amar Adatia who will be taking on the role of Jags added: “My younger self would never have believed I’d be on EastEnders.
“It’s pretty amazing to be part of one of the most iconic television shows alongside some of the best actors in the business.
“I really am so grateful.”
On playing the role of Vinny, Shiv Jalota said: “It still hasn’t sunk in that I’m going to be on EastEnders.
“As a young boy, I remember being introduced to the Masood family and thinking there are people like me on television.
“To be part of that next generation of people representing my identity is a blessing. I couldn’t be more excited.”
