Ross Kemp is reportedly being lined up to return to Eastenders.

The 51-year-old shot to fame as Phil Mitchell's brother Grant on the British soap, and has spent the last few years shooting documentaries for Sky One.

But he's going back to the beginning in a shock twist for next year's storyline, where he's set to save his brother.

Producers are said to be keen to bring back some of the show's more famous faces as part of a "big four" reunion comprising of Grant, Phil, Sharon and Kathy, according to the Sunday Mirror.

Executive Producer Dominic Treadwell Collins previously spoke of his desire to orchestrate a return of Kemp's character to Albert Square.

"I think the fact that you've got Phil, Kathy, Sharon - there's a person missing, isn't there? To get all four on screen at the same time is a dream. As an Eastenders fan, you want to watch that."
