The guy who played the thug who beat up Derek last week is called Ben Wigzell and he has stated on twitter he will return to ee in the New Year https://mobile.twitter.com/BenWigzell

I wonder what his connection is to Kirsty, brother perhaps?

You're welcome.

He looks really good looking actually, I hope he can also act though but who knows it could just be a one off appearance.

His showreel can be found here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q0fCxnn4rxg and there's a treat at about 1:30

Who knows, I mean all we've got is that comment from twitter so it could be that he makes another brief appearance in the show and may not be connected to Kirsty but I don't know why else he would go looking for Derek and Max.

I hope however he is around for a bit longer than that, I liked what I saw from that first appearance and would like to see what else Ben has to offer.

He's looking for Dereks scumbag brother who is hiding, so I think it a huge possibility that he guy played by Ben is Kirstys brother.

He seems like someone who can handle themself and thats what I find intriuging. The good looks is just an added bonus.

I saw him first too!

I would have hated for it to be just forgotton and used as a plot device to throw us off the scent from the eventual truth.

Yes I think we were meant to expect the thugs to turn up at Max's, not Kirsty. So it will need to be explained why they were after Derek. Watching that clip I'm certain they were looking for Max for Kirsty, so she's either a gangster or one or more of them are her brothers.

Very plausible.

I hope he isnt another sulky one. Ryan was like that, and so was Dennis, very poor excuse for acting.

What we really need is Sean back, he was actually able to be funny as well as tough. Although whenever I hear "tough" I just think of George Michael singing Wake Me Up with his little hot pants on. Sort of panto tough.

His CV looks good so I think he is a much better actor than David Witts...

All we know so far is that he is returning, we don't know exactly how long. It could be for just one ep.

If he does end up being Kirsty's brother I wonder if that means they are going to build a new family up around her? Stephanie Beacham would be amazing as their mother!

Being a better actor than David Witts is no great achievement if we're honest

I'm not sure Stephanie Beacham is the right person for Easties, I think she'd be far too glam for it.

In her Sable Colby Dynasty days i would have agreed with you however in recent years she's starred in Bad Girls and Corrie and neither role was very "glam" yet she was fantastic. She'd be a brilliant addition to the cast!
