What did Ross Kemp say about returning to EastEnders?

During the show Adil asked: “I would like to ask you, just like in my career, I presented a little bit and also acted, but I haven’t seen you act for a while, did you put that on your back? Burner?

“Do you watch scripts? Could we see you on our screen again soon? “

Ross replied with a smile, “All I’m going to say, you know, I have a mortgage to pay like everyone else … so whatever gets in my way.”

And when Adil urged fans to see Ross again as the icon of Grant Mitchell, Ross replied ambivalently.

“Who knows, that’s not my decision, I have to say that,” he said.

When did Ross appear in EastEnders?

The last time Ross appeared on the BBC One soap was in 2016 when Grant attended Peggy Mitchell’s funeral.

Before that sad moment, Grant first appeared on soap fans’ screens in 1990 as part of the partnership between the Grant and Phil brothers.

He left 1996 but returned for two years between 2005 and 2006.

And during his time in the Square, Grant was involved in some of the show’s greatest storylines of all time, including Sharongate in 1994.

What else did Ross do?

Ross also appeared on the show to promote his Cheers For Volunteers initiative.

After touring the UK for a tough Covid documentary during the pandemic, he now wants to give something back.

Last week he took a couple of volunteers out for a drink in north London.

He said, “Wherever you will be at 5pm on July 4th, please join me in raising your drink of choice for all of the volunteers who have accompanied us through the pandemic.

“The past year has been tough for all of us, but we’ve also seen it bring our churches closer together.

“Whatever happens next in the pandemic, we’re going to need to maintain that community spirit.”
