New EastEnders boss Dominic Treadwell-Collins has already caused a stir amongst Albert Square fans by confirming a new character via Twitter - and he's not finished just yet.

It has been confirmed that four major characters will be getting the chop from the soap in he New Year.

According to an EastEnders source, Dominic didn't feel characters Kirsty Branning (Kierston Wareing), AJ Masood (Phaldut Sharma), Carl White (Daniel Coonan) and Poppy Meadow (Rachel Bright) "fit with the direction he is taking the show," so he made the decision to write them out.

The source continued, "His arrival has gone down really well with cast and crew and there is a real energy at the studios right now." That doesn't surprise us considering last time Dominic was called in he attracted 16.6 million viewers for his Who Killed Archie Mitchell? storyline.

Dominic has also drafted in two new characters so the Queen Vic doesn't feel too empty. Terry Alderton will play Terry Spraggan - the new love interest of Bianca Butcher - while ex-Holby City star Luisa Bradshaw-White will play Shirley Cater's sister, Tina.

We're looking forward to seeing what Dominic will bring to the show, but who is going to get the chop next?
