Kenny Beale was a minor character in EastEnders in 1988. He was the older brother of Pete Beale and Pauline Fowler. He was played by Michael Attwell.

The character also appeared in two EastEnders novels Home Fires Burning and Swings and Roundabouts.


Kenny Beale was born in early 1940 in Walford to Albert and Lou Beale. He was named after the middle name of his paternal grandfather. Kenny was one of several children born to Albert and Lou. In October 1964, aged almost 25, Kenny was banished from Walford by his mother Lou after she caught him in bed with Pat Beale, his brother Pete Beale's wife. Lou told him to get as far away from Walford as possible, and that was New Zealand, over 10'000 miles away. Kenny emigrated there at the demands of his mother. He became a swimming pool salesman. Kenny married a woman named Barbara and they had a daughter Elizabeth Beale in 1969.

In early 1988, Kenny decided to visit England after 23 years, one reason was he wanted to see his elderly mother Lou before she was to die.


After 23 years in New Zealand, in February 1988, Kenny Beale returned to Walford. He was now 48 years old. He was told by Pat that Simon Wicks was his son. That was until Pete and Kenny visited her and demanded the exact truth. Pat said she slept with Kenny then Pete a few times around the time she fell pregnant so either one of them could be the father. Kenny later returned to New Zealand.

In 1992, Pauline went to visit Kenny in New Zealand after her had been in a car accident.

In 2006 Kenny sent a wreath to Pauline's funeral. What Kenny has been up to since is unknown. As of 2018 he will be 78 years old.
