EastEnders star Laurie Brett has dropped a hint that her character Jane Beale could make a return.

Laurie played Jane on and off from 2004 until 2017.

Her character was forced to leave Walford in 2017 during Max Branning’s revenge plot.

This morning (Thursday, July 1) Laurie appeared on BBC One’s Morning Live to talk about the success of BBC school drama Waterloo Road, where Laurie played Christine Mulgrew.

Laurie responded saying: “I can neither confirm or deny, no, no! Well you know, she’s not dead, so she could come back.

“I’ve never felt that Jane’s story was over and she had so many links to so many different people on the square. If she did go back, it would cause absolute mayhem.

“But you know it depends on whether the producers think it’s a good time for Jane to be on the show.

“It’s a lot about the dynamic of the show as well as the characters within it and who people interact with, there’s a time and a place for every character, I think.

“Apart from you know the Ian Beale, but I’m sure Ian Beale is with Jane as we speak! Where else would he be?”
