EastEnders might be lining up an online dating story for Robbie Jackson, which could see the hapless market worker find love at last.
Dean Gaffney reprised his role as Sonia's brother Robbie earlier this year and the actor has promised there are some exciting plots on the way for his character.
"There's a good few storylines coming up for Robbie's return", Dean told the Daily Star.
"He's trying to find love, and in the new age of finding love, he may find romance in the same way people nowadays are finding romance."
And asked whether he was referring to online dating, he cheekily replied: "You said it. It could be an Instagram thing. We don't know."
Robbie initially left the soap back in 2003 with his partner Nita Mistry, with whom he went on to have a son. However, upon returning to Walford in 2014, Robbie revealed their marriage had ended, and he later decided to relocate to Milton Keynes.
Speaking to Digital Spy recently about whether Robbie could find romance, Dean said: "I was always asking if he could have a permanent partner.
"Patsy Palmer used to always say that they should go against the grain and get Robbie a fit woman; someone who is walking through the Square and everyone is saying 'Who is that?', 'Robbie's girlfriend'. This absolute worldy. But in my opinion, it never happened."
EastEnders continues on Thursday, September 14 at 7.30pm on BBC One.
