EastEnders star switches careers to completely different job – seven years after soap exit | The Sun

EASTENDERS star Jonny Labey is hoping to storm the charts after switching up his career once more since leaving Albert Square.

The actor, who played Paul Coker in the BBC soap, has dropped his first single as a musician and fans think it is a real banger.

Taking to social media, Jonny has shared a short clip taken from the music video for Keeps Me Up, which features King Khamelion.

Jonny can be seen strutting down the street at night while wearing a cream suit and clutching a trilby hat.

At one point, the former soap star whips it off and runs his hands through his trademark curly mop of hair.

Jonny has also posted a picture of himself wrapped in a blanket on the beach, telling his Instagram followers: "Some close call single release art."

The latest development in Jonny's career comes after The Sun Online revealed that he has also retrained as a barber.

Jonny said that barbering "redefines 'Side Hustle' into a career I can proudly build and that I love".

And if that is not enough, the soap star has just finished writing his first short film, too.

He has told fans that We All Scream is based on a "true moment" in his life and says he hopes it will be "my first leap as a director".
