image for Rupert Murdoch to star in Eastenders
Murdoch as Jimmy Saville

Billionaire tycoon Rupert Murdoch is to join the cast of Eastenders, soap bosses have revealed.

The mega rich Aussie will play Pat Butcher's twin sister, Vera and join the cast in November.

Writer Lawrence Smythe-Williamson confirmed the news 'We see Rupert as a vital addition to the cast in the run-up to Christmas. As well as being Pat's long-lost sibling he will also be love interest to Alfie Moon'.

Murdoch has had a distinguished acting career including playing Johnny 5 in Short Circuit 2 and the title role in biopic of Steve Guttenberg.

The signing is likely to send ripples through the cast following his on-off affair with actor Steve McFadden.
