Adrian Edmondson hints he is returning to EastEnders

Daniel isn't dead after all...

Adrian Edmondson has dropped a huge hint he will return to EastEnders.

The 62-year-old star joined the BBC One soap in June as Daniel Cook, who became a love interest for Jean Slater (Gillian Wright).

While she now believes he has passed away, viewers saw him after he faked his own funeral.

And Adrian has now admitted he could be back in Albert Square.

He told Good Morning Britain: "He's technically alive, and who knows whether he will come back or not [winks]?

"He's definitely not dead, that's all I'm allowed to say."

The Bottom star also revealed he could see his and Gillian's storyline being turned into successful spin-off.

He added: "It's cracking. It was offered as a story of this bloke.

"And if you cut our bits together it makes a nice series of its own I think."

Adrian previously admitted he was following in the footsteps of his fellow drama school students Tom Watt and Paul Bradley in joining the soap.

He said in a statement: "There were only fifteen boys on my drama course at Manchester Uni, and I'll be the third to appear in EastEnders - so I feel it's a kind of tradition! The other two being Tom Watt (Lofty Holloway) and Paul Bradley (Nigel Bates)".

"We're all over the moon he's coming to Walford and can't wait for this love story to hit screens later this year."
