EASTENDERS fans have been left convinced that Keanu Taylor’s dad has secretly arrived in Walford.
Fans of the BBC soapwatched as a handsome mystery man made his way into Walford last night – with many thinking there is an obvious connection to Keanu.
Luke Smith plays newcomer Dorian Gates who is pals with Queen Vic landlord George Knight.
A boxing expert, the cheeky chap is hoping to put on some matches at The Boxing Den and it seems that Sharon Watts has already caught his eye.
Having discussed his plans for the boxing events, Dorian asks Sharon if she would like to head out for a drink while they continue to talk all things.
Appearing flirtatious, the pair continued to chat before he offered up a once in a lifetime opportunity to Sharon – despite only having just met.
He tells her of a new life she could have in Abu Dhabi with son Albie as he has a promising job opportunity on offer for the Walford stalwart.
Having showered her in compliments and kissed her on the cheek, Sharon’s toyboy lover Keanu becomes suspicious but viewers reckon that isn’t the only thing he should be worried about.
They are convinced that Dorian is actually Keanu’s real father after they insisted the two bore a striking resemblance.
Many flocked to X – formerly Twitter – to share their thoughts on the potential father-son duo.
Writing online, one said: “Dorian could pass as Keanu’s dad they literally look so alike.”
Another penned: “Why does Dorian remind me of an older Keanu mixed with Christian Clarke and a tad bit of Phil? #Eastenders.”
A third wrote: “Dorian looks like he could be Keanu’s dad tbh! Imagine if he was? If Karen recognised him lol? (And Phil looks a little jealous of him flirting with ar Shaz).”
Before a fourth chimed in: “You’re onto something…I recall an article earlier in the year saying Keanu’s dad is due to rock up??”
