Shaun Williamson has landed a role in a new BBC comedy.

The former "EastEnders" actor - who is best known for his part as Barry Evans in the BBC One soap - is to star in "Mister Winner" alongside Spencer Jones and Lucy Pearman.

He said: "I'm delighted to be part of "Mister Winner", alongside the brilliant Lucy and Spencer. Leslie is like the son-in-law I never wanted.

"I have to keep reminding myself he's not real or I'd never sleep at night."

The comedy will see Spencer star as the hapless Leslie Winner who often finds himself in disastrous situations, and Lucy will appear as his fiancee Jemma, while Shaun will play Jemma's father Chris.

"I really hope people like the show because I can't find the car and the missus can't remember where she parked it."

Harriet Thorpe will appear as Leslie's mother Sharon, Oliver Maltman stars as Sharon's younger boyfriend Steve, and Leon Annor will portray Leslie's best mate Cooper.

Filming for the six-part comedy is already underway, and the show will be executive produced by Chris Sussman, BBC Studios" head of comedy.

He added: "Spencer Jones is a very funny man but a massive liability, and I can't believe we've let him loose around some very expensive production equipment.

"Let's hope the BBC's insurance premiums are up to date."
