Here's When and Why Ryan Malloy Returns to Walford
You would be forgiven for forgetting that Whitney Dean's brother, Ryan, is the biological father of Stacey Slater's daughter Lily as it's been a while.
When it was revealed Ryan and Stacey's 12-year-old daughter was pregnant, fans were screaming at their screens to see the character return, and thankfully it seems the writers had the same idea!
Ryan was last seen in 2016, but is now living in Wakefield with his wife, prison officer Helen. It has been revealed that his short stint on the show will be a dramatic one.
Speaking about his upcoming arrival, actor Neil McDermott said: "When I heard what the story was I was really pleased that the stars aligned and I was able to revisit Ryan and set foot back on the Square.
