Could Hunter Owen be the new EastEnders super villain?

Actor Charlie Winter hints that there are dark things ahead for his character

With Aidan Maguire just a bad memory there's a vacancy in Albert Square for a new baddie - and actor Charlie Winter , who plays newcomer Hunter Owen, reckons it could just be down to fill it!

Hunter's already ruffled some feathers on the Square since he arrived to live with mum, Mel.

Determined to find out more about his dad Steve, he's forced Mel to tell him everything about Steve's dodgy dealings, and even talked her into renaming the club E20, as it was when Steve ran it.

And now Charlie Winter, who plays the smooth teen, has hinted that the residents of Albert Square should be very afraid of his alter-ego.

He's slightly psychotic.

Because he's shaping up to be a real chip off the old block.

"He is very naughty," Charlie told OK! Online. "He's doing a lot of bad things and it's good. I'm enjoying it. He's slightly psychotic."

And Charlie added that Hunter's determination to find out more about his dad, will cause more trouble, with things set to get even darker.

"It's making him know more and more because people around the Square are making passing comments that he hasn't heard before," explained Charlie.

We're kind of hoping his first victim might be Ian Beale - who's set his sights on Hunter's mum - and Ian's ex-wife - Mel.

And we can't wait to see what havoc Hunter causes round the Square.
