There is one character the majority of viewers want to see return to Walford, Grant Mitchell. Ross has played Grant on and off since 1990 and is probably asked in every interview if he will return full-time.

Ross criticised ex-executive producer Sean O'Connor, when he said: “He reminded me of a sort of schoolteacher of a kind of third-rate public school. That’s not really what you want for the cast of EastEnders.”

Speaking about the current producer, John Yorke, Ross said to Metro: "John has done a brilliant job. I worked with him when he was very young – he's a fantastic producer, and the show's going from strength to strength."

EastEnders, BBC One
Ross has become one of Britain's most famous investigative journalists and documentary maker, revealing last year that he will have to stop putting himself in danger at some point, so does that mean he would he return to EastEnders?

Ross left that question open as he simply replied: "It's a great job to have and I often think it would be lovely to be back in a soap" - Would you like to see Grant back full-time?
