EastEnders SHOCKER: Ricky Norwood teases that Fatboy never died!

We never saw a body...

It seems that we are in the age of soap characters returning from the dead.

In recent weeks, Barbara Windsor has hinted that Peggy Mitchell might return to Albert Square, despite passing away during emotional scenes.

This was then followed by Corrie’s Helen Worth suggesting that just because we watched Kylie Platt get murdered on our screens, it doesn’t mean she will be dead and buried forever.

Now another character could be coming back from the other side.

This time, it seems that they may never have been killed off in the first place.

Recent Celebrity Big Brother star Ricky Norwood, had teased his return to Easties as his character, Fatboy.

His death brought a black cloud to Christmas in Walford last year, when he was seemingly crushed in the boot of a car.

Ricky has pointed out though, that viewers never saw Fatboy die, or even his dead body.

Could this be one of the most sensational soap comebacks of all time?

Speaking to, Ricky said: “I got told that he died in the boot – but I wasn’t physically in the boot.

“I didn’t ever shoot any scenes in the boot, it was all the stunt team. I mean there’s always a possibility.

“The fans tell me that there’s a possibility!

“Do you know how many plot twists there’ve been in nearly every storyline that has happened since I have left that people are like ‘yes, you’re coming back!’?”

Ricky was recently spotted on the set of EastEnders, sparking rumours that he was returning.

He said at the time that he was there for Nitin Ganatra goodbyes from the soap, after he revealed that he was leaving his role as Masood Ahmed behind.

While there may be nothing signed as yet, Ricky admits that he wouldn’t say no to a return.

He admitted: “I’m never ever going to deny a phone call.

“I’ve got love, so much love for EastEnders, the production team, all the cast.

“We did some great work while I was there and they’re doing some great work now.”
