The BBC's most popular soap Eastenders is finally bringing a Sikh family to the show, the first in its 34-year history.

A trio of brothers – the Panesar family – will make their debut later this week. Their introduction had been kept under wraps for months.

The Panesars will reportedly go head-to-head with one of the show's most prominent families.

Executive producer Jon Sen said: "The Panesar family will bring their own unique blend of charm and chaos onto the Square."

"A British Asian family of Punjabi Sikh heritage, Kheerat, Jags and Vinny are three very different brothers who turn up in Walford looking to settle a score – however, fate quickly takes a hand and they find themselves staying for good."

"We’re thrilled to be introducing this vibrant new family to Walford and to be sharing their stories."
