Speaking on EastEnders' Secrets from the Square he said: "On a personal level, I'm really looking forward to getting back around my friends and colleagues.

"And also being able to see where the storylines go from here, how the people of Walford live in the new world, and how the storylines pick up from where we left off.

"It's all a very intriguing time, almost to reset what Walford is and how the characters interact and relate."
