A lot of characters come in and stay in the background for a long time, but Joey eastenders dating Joey, I was lucky enough to come in and really get some good stuff. I'm really pleased with the scenes I've done with Jacqueline [Jossa] and I was very proud of how it played out.

I think everyone's dead in my family, aren't they?
So if EastEnders ever wanted me to pop back for a bit, then I'd absolutely think about that. But I just can't imagine they will, because I don't think there's anyone Joey eastenders dating in terms of a story that would bring Joey back.
