Soap bosses have confirmed that Chok will be playing new character Honour, the psychiatrist assigned to work with Warren Fox inside the prison.

Warren was recently sent back to prison in spite of being cleared of any responsibility for Operation Bluebird, when Fergus's lawyer sent police video of Warren burying henchman Timmy's body.

"I hit the ground running, filming high drama with absolute sweetheart, Jamie Lomas, followed by a gawp-worthy confrontation in the Village with Cindy (Steph Waring) and Becky (Katie McGlynn). Also, much to my delight, there has been a gallon laughter, love and heart-warming joy with some others, but I can't say too much about that yet...

"I hope the fans have a whale of a time with caring, chaotic Honour as she starts life again in yet another new place. I love her!"
