The soap newbie will be puffing feathers when he arrives in Walford next month.
A fan said on the Digital Spy Forums, “I was wondering if this new Zack character that was announced the other day might be related. Maybe it’s Gavin’s son? Would give Sharon a sibling. “
A second said, “My thought of him was whether he could be Dennis Rickman’s son or his brother, but Gavin’s son could be a good call.”
