The good news keeps on coming for Bray resident Denise McCormack.

After making her EastEnders debut last week as Ciara Maguire, Denise announced this week that she has been cast in a film by MK1 productions, the company responsible for The Young Offenders, and starts filming next month.

Denise, her partner Barry and their children live in the Southern Cross area of Bray.

The Drimnagh native popped up on the screens of Eastenders fans last Tuesday night, as the ex-partner of criminal Aidan Maguire, played by Patrick Bergin.

Ciara turned up on Albert Square in the aftermath of Aidan's armed robbery, after he, Phil Mitchell and their cronies plotted to rob a huge cash sum from a van being driven by an armed gang.

Ciara turned up to diffuse the situation and it quickly became clear that she was in control of the armed gang and the money taken.

It didn't take her long to suspect Aidan and his old pal Phil of being behind the robbery.

Denise had to keep her appearance a secret until the day of the broadcast, when she encouraged her Instagram followers to tune in.

She has been wowing Irish audiences in a series of popular and complicated roles, including on the shows Red Rock and Love/Hate.

She also did a turn on last year's Dancing with the Stars on RTE and finished third.
