EastEnders star Cheryl Fergison, who played Heather Trott, has said she would like to return as her alter-ego’s long-lost twin.

Cheryl played Heather on the BBC soap from 2007 until 2012, when she was killed by Ben Mitchell.

But although Heather is dead, Cheryl has a plan which could see her come back to the show.

Appearing on Loose Women, the actress said: “They could bring Cheryl back as Heather but it wouldn’t be Heather. I had this idea when I first came out of it that possibly they could bring me back as Heather’s long-lost twin.

“There are feasible sort of storylines because Heather’s mum was really awful and used to sell babies with Babe, very strange.

“So I thought ‘oh yeah I could come back as Heather’s long-lost twin’ and be played by me, the same actress. I thought EastEnders could have grabbed that but it didn’t happen. And you know what? I live up north now so it’s moving on and up.

On the show, Cheryl also expressed she is a musical person and loves to sing.

Speaking about launching a singing career Cheryl said: “I mean I play guitar.

“I love Ed [Sheeran] and Lewis’s [Capaldi] songs and I sort of write songs myself. I have always done it but I’ve never gone into a studio. No one’s ever asked me to go into a studio and do an album and do anything like that I’ve always wanted to.

“My son’s into vinyl in a big way, he’s nicked all my vinyl. So I’d love to have a record or a CD or whatever it is, one of those digital things, just with my music on but maybe collaborations with people.”

Coleen then stated that she doesn’t think people realise how great of a voice Cheryl has. Coleen also encouraged Cherly to get out and show off her voice more.

EastEnders airs Mondays at 8.05pm, Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7.35pm and Fridays at 8.30pm on BBC One.
