EastEnders to air spin-off show following Kim Fox as she launches new career

She's been an EastEnders favourite since 2009, and now Albert Square’s Kim Fox (Tameka Empson) has landed her own nine-part comedy spin-off.

The show will follow sassy Kim as she attempts to become a fully-fledged social media influencer.

Kim's enlisted the help of Howie ( Delroy Atkinson) as her very own personal cameraman as she tries her hand at a variety of different influencer trends and challenges including boxing and upcycling – with often hilarious results.

The digital series consists of nine vlogs from Kim to her ‘Fox Cubbies’ and will also feature special guest appearances from some familiar Walford faces including Sonia Fowler (Natalie Cassidy), Denise Fox (Diane Parish), Ben Mitchell (Max Bowden) and Karen Taylor (Lorraine Stanley).

EastEnders viewers have already seen Kim set her sights on becoming a social media star and now more determined than ever, Kim will have help from some real-life influencers in her vlogs including Ella Blake and Mariam Musa along with professional boxer Chantelle Cameron

The Kimfluencer can be seen on the official EastEnders YouTube and Facebook pages from 6pm on Friday May 6th.

Viewers can watch the show live or catch up at any time.

Tameka Empson said: "I’m a lucky girl to not only love my job, but I also love playing Kim.

"Kim is a funny, loving, strong, sensitive, independent ‘Mother Of Two’ who is always trying to be the best she can be and to be a great ‘Influencer’ not only to her family and friends – but the world! I am grateful to EastEnders for giving me this opportunity."

"I think there is a bit of Kim in all of us – so embrace your Kim Fox and watch, like and subscribe to The Kimfluencer on YouTube! Hope you enjoy."

The new series launches weekly from Friday 6th May on the EastEnders YouTube and Facebook pages.

EastEnders continues Monday to Thursday at 7.30pm on BBC One
