It's the small screen reunion Eastenders fans want and Ross Kemp is not ruling out a return to the Square as Grant Mitchell.

Gillian Taylforth (Kathy Beale) recently made a return to the soap in a storyline revolving around ex husband Phil (Steve McFadden) and Sharon (Laetitia Dean).

Speaking at a personal appearance recently Kemp said, "Everyone wants to know about EastEnders, and at the moment I don't know, so I can't really say anything.

"There has been rumours and I have never said that I wouldn't go back."

Rumours have abounded that Grant will return to save his brother Steve in scenes to broadcast early next year.

Last month Ross tweeted "never say never" regarding the rumours so it appears he's ready and willing to reprise his role as the bolder and badder of the Mitchell brothers.

A Grant Mitchell storyline would undoubtedly mean ratings gold for the BBC as his arrival would see the reunion of Kathy, Sharon, Phil and Grant.

Gillian Taylforth last week said "to have him back would be just fantastic.  It would be lovely - there would be another Mitchell brother in the Square for me to choose from!"

Barbara Windsor, who played Mitchell matriarch Peggy, has also previously said she would return to the soap if Ross Kemp did too and producer Dominic Treadwell Collins also recently said he felt there was "one person missing" in scenes between Kathy, Phil, and Sharon.
