Speaking to Inside Soap, he previously said, "When it was time to leave the show, I didn't want to go – however, there were no more storylines for Tyler.

"The best thing to do was have him go off on that cruise, but it's been a blimmin' long holiday. I think it's time he came back.

"When I got the call for EastEnders, it was like winning the lottery. I was working at Billingsgate Fish Market in the day and going to acting classes at night. It was so surreal to go from selling sea bass to being stopped in the street and asked for a picture."

With the EastEnders 35th anniversary coming up, there couldn't be a more perfect time for Tyler to return and save Whitney from the doom and gloom of the last few months.

EastEnders airs Monday and Friday at 8pm and Tuesday and Thursday at 7.30pm on BBC One.
