EastEnders star Danielle Harold has called for a fan-favourite character to return from the dead.

The actress, who made her own comeback as Lola Pearce earlier this year, revealed she'd like to see Fatboy make a sensational return to Albert Square.

Speaking to Metro.co.uk at the TV Choice Awards, Danielle said: "We never found out what happened to him."

Played by Ricky Norwood, Fatboy was last seen on the soap in 2015 when he was locked in the boot of a car and then crushed to death in a scrapyard in a case of mistaken identity with Vincent Hubbard.

However, Fatboy's body was never actually shown on screen (probably because it would have been too gruesome), which technically means anything could still be possible.

Talking about her own return to the soap, Danielle said: "Coming back now is like coming home. I just got stuck straight back in, which was lovely, and meeting the new cast has been great as well."

She also teased that the Mitchell family will soon be faced with even more drama, saying: "We've got a lot coming up for the Mitchells. There are lots of secrets about."

EastEnders airs on BBC One.
