Who is Aaron Monroe in EastEnders?
Aaron is the son of Harvey Monroe and older brother of Dana, Bobby’s girlfriend.
Aaron has been described as confident and likes to get his own way.
He is close to his dad who raised him alone but as soon as he landed a job in finance, he left home.
Things between Aaron and Dana are strained and she often feels shut out by him.
