EASTENDERS newbies Jessica Plummer and Toby-Alexander Smith were seen getting lunch together during a break from filming earlier today.
The pair dressed down as they grabbed some food from Marks and Spencers and a coffee from Starbucks.
Jessica and Toby-Alexander play husband and wife team Chantelle and Gary Atkins in the hit BBC soap.
The actress, 26, is no stranger to showbiz – she had two top 10 hits with girlband Neon Gungle in 2014 before they called it quits a year later.
A telly source told The Sun’s TV Biz: “Show chiefs have high hopes of some meaty storylines.”
It was first revealed in December last year that the feisty Chantelle will be making her way to Albert Square.
The daughter of Karen Taylor and Mitch Baker will arrive in Walford and immediately clash with her mum.
Initially making a positive impact with her kind and bubbly nature, there’s plenty more behind the easy-going girl next door facade.
Karen and Mitch are delighted to see their daughter in Walford but it soon becomes clear there’s some friction between mum and daughter.
Kate Oates, Senior Executive Producer EastEnders, said: “The Taylor family are set to be complete when Chantelle arrives in Walford and Chantelle certainly has that feisty Taylor streak.

“Things are set to get a whole lot louder in Walford in 2019.”
The Taylor family first joined the Square in May 2017 and have caused plenty of havoc ever since.
Mum Karen – played by Lorraine Stanley – has had to deal with her son Keegan being stabbed in the neck by a gang, as well as ex Mitch messing her around.
Meanwhile son Keanu – played by Danny Walters – has been having an affair with Sharon Mitchell.
