EastEnders’s Ben Mitchell sparks rumours Grant is returning to Albert Square

They pair were making lists of guests they wanted to invite to their big day.

And eagle-eyed fans spotted a few names of characters not seen for a while in Walford – not least fan favourite Grant Mitchell.

The list showed his name – but could he be returning?

Grant has not been seen on EastEnders since he made a brief return to the soap in 2016, when mother Peggy was diagnosed with terminal cancer.

They made their debuts on Albert Square in 1990, with Phil appearing two days before Grant.

Phil appeared on the 20th February of that year, and Grant on 22nd.

Ben's surrogate grandparents Pam and Les also feature on the list, meaning they could make a return too.

However, with the pandemic still in full swing and filming restrictions in place, it may take a while to get any characters back in Walford.

And with it being a soap anything could happen – so a wedding may not even get off the ground.

Actor Ross Kemp recently said he would be open to returning to the soap.

"I don't think you ever rule it out," he told Entertainment Daily.

"But that would be down to the BBC, that's not down to me. I would never say no to going back to anything.

"I've always enjoyed acting and if an acting role came along, I would take it if it was something that I thought I would enjoy."
