Actor Sid Owen, known best as Walford's Ricky Butcher, has revealed he's well up for a return to BBC1 soap EastEnders
Sid Owen said he would '100% go back to EastEnders', where he made his name as Ricky Butcher.
The 44-year-old revealed he has a contract with the BBC that he hopes will get him back on to Albert Square after four years away.
He told The Sun: “I can’t really say too much about what I’ve got on, but I’d 100% go back to EastEnders – it’s part of my life.
“I’ve done 28 years on and off and 15,000 episodes. Ricky is not dead yet – I should go back one day and finish the storyline or go back for a length of time.
“I’m always in touch with people from the show.”
Sid will make his first appearance on Celebrity MasterChef on Wednesday night, and has had a long history with the Beeb since leaving the soap as he also appeared in Strictly Come Dancing.
Celebrity MasterChef screens at 8pm on BBC1
