Can't wait [sic]."

HOW EXCITING.

A spokesperson for the soap went on to add a profile for his character, revealing: "Ryan is a good guy in a committed relationship who will move into the village. He is a grounded family man with principle and integrity but who will fight tooth and nail for what he believes in."

As of yet we're not entirely sure when Duncan will make his on-screen appearance, but one thing's for sure: we'll be waiting with the snacks.
