Mikey North is best known for his roles as Helmsley in Waterloo Road and Gary Windass in the ITV soap opera since 2008.

North’s first professional work was in the play Bottle Universe in London’s West End, which won him the British Theatre Guide’s award for the most promising newcomer.

Ahead of tonight, Mikey said: "I am really looking forward to visiting the Isle of Wight for the first time, and meeting the Island community for this very exciting event."

Ryan previously played the role of Flynn Buchanan in Emmerdale in 2011, as well as Liam Slade in the BBC soap opera Doctors, before becoming Ryan Connor.
