But fans think she will end up being the bisexual character teased by soap bosses earlier this year.

Another added: "I can see it being Dotty, she’ll get with Bernadette and it’ll probably cause tiff to grow jealous/annoyed over seeing her childhood enemy with her best friend."

Story editor Ben Wadey teased the newcomer on Twitter after praising the reaction to the soap's increased push towards diversity.

He tweeted: "Been great to see all the positive reaction to LGBTQ+ representation on EastEnders recently, and excited for us to have a new B in the show soon."

The show was dogged for years about its LGBT representation with only two characters on the show - Sonia and Tina - shown to be part of the community.

However they were both shown to sleep with men rather than women leading to claims of gay-washing from viewers.

But since Kate Oates has taken over she has rapidly increased diversity on the show.

Now there are Ben Mitchell, Callum Highway, Iqra Ahmed and her girlfriend Ash and Bernie Taylor all representing the community.

Could Dotty be joining them?
