Jimi Mistry joins cast of E4's new teen drama

East Is East star Jimi Mistry has joined the cast of new E4 drama The Cut.

The actor, who shot to fame in EastEnders as Dr. Fonseca, will play a music teacher in the six-part series, which follows the lives of four kids at a fictional London stage school.

The show - from Life On Mars producer Kudos - is being aimed at a younger teen audience than E4 megahit Skins. "It's completely different from Skins," a source told DS. "In The Cut the kids are in a highly competitive, dog-eat-dog environment where they'll do anything to succeed and get ahead of their peers. And they're all drop-dead gorgeous!"

The Cut airs on E4 from November.
