Duncan James only watches 'EastEnders' for his good friend Rita Simons.
Rita - who plays feisty Roxy Mitchell in the East London soap - has been friends with Duncan for years and even performed as his back-up singer in 2006 before finding fame on TV, and he admits he likes to see what she is doing in the show.
Duncan said: "I like to watch the show and see what they're doing with her character. Purely because Rita is one of my best friends."
However, Duncan does dip in and out f the soap regardless, finding he can pick it up quickly even when he hasn't watched for months.
He revealed in InsideSoap magazine: "I find that EastEnders is one of those shows that I can't watch for three months, then suddenly I'll catch a single episode and get right back into it again."
This week sees Roxy Mitchell discover that £10,000 is missing from the Queen Vic's bank account. Christian advises her to stay out of it, but Roxy can't help but investigate where the missing money has gone.
