EastEnders Peter is proud of City roots

IRISH EastEnders actor Peter Vollebregt has revealed he would love to return to Fair City.

He was recently caught up in one of Albert Square's juiciest storylines but the Dublin-born actor told the Diary he would jump at the chance to return to his roots in Carrigstown.

"I really enjoyed my years on Fair City," he said. "I'd love to come back and work on it at some point in the future.

"I'm not sure if they'd want me back but I would really love to because it was a fantastic point in my career.

"I have no idea if or when I might be back on EastEnders but I've loved every minute of it."

Peter recently starred in the UK soap as therapist Allen Conlon, who got involved with the Masood family. Allen claimed he could cure Syed Masood of his homosexuality.

Long before being signed on to play the controversial Allen in the hit BBC soap, Peter made his name on RTE's Fair City.

The actor had Irish audiences gripped by his role as Eoghan's partner Andrew Taylor on Fair City in one of its most controversial plots in 1999. The role saw Peter's character comfort Eoghan after he assisted the suicide of his first partner Simon when he contracted AIDS.

"It was a terrific part to play and really was groundbreaking on Irish television so I'm very proud of my time on Fair City," he said.
