Ricky Norwood reunites with EastEnders co-star for new project

He left EastEnders in 2015

Former EastEnders star Ricky Norwood has reunited with Rudolph Walker for The Rudolph Walker Foundation show.

Walford fave Rudolph, who plays Patrick Trueman on the soap, launched The Rudolph Walker Foundation on his 70th birthday.

According to the website, it was set up to "develop the creative and technical skills and talents of young people by providing them with the equipment and facilities which will enable them to produce and distribute audio and visual programmes and other types of digital content relating to their culture, history, music and the world in which they live."

Ricky, who starred in EastEnders as Fatboy, posted a picture with Rudolph and others taking part in the project.

Ricky played Fatboy, aka Arthur Chubb, from 2010 till 2015.

Poor Fatboy was caught in a war between Vincent Hubbard and Ronnie Mitchell.

In a tragic case of mistaken identity Fatboy was kidnapped by some of Ronnie's heavies and locked in the boot of a car at the Arches.

Unfortunately the car then got taken off to be crushed and the last we saw of Ricky Norwood's character was Vincent pulling Fatboy's trademark 'F' medallion out of the car's wreckage.

However, it has never been confirmed whether Fatboy actually died.

EastEnders is on Mondays and Fridays at 8pm and Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7.30pm
