EastEnders star Laurie Brett has confirmed that the door will be left open for her character Jane at the end of her current stint on the soap.

The actress is now back on screen as Jane after taking time off for maternity leave, but as announced in October, she is only back for a few months as she wants to spend as much time as possible with her baby daughter Erin.

Brett told This Morning today: "It's such a hamster wheel to run on, EastEnders - it's such a massive machine and the hours are so long. So I've decided just to go back for a few months and give myself a bit of flexibility after that.

"I don't want to miss the whole first year and everything that happens with the baby within that. I think that, if I've waited this long to have one, then I should enjoy it.

"I'm going back for a few months and they're not going to bump Jane off, I don't think, so the door will be left open for something in the future."

Discussing life with baby Erin, she continued: "It's going really well - she's amazing and I just can't believe it. The time goes so fast. It's an incredible time that we've had with her, and my mum and dad didn't think they'd ever be grandparents, so they're over the moon."

Brett also teased Jane's future with Masood Ahmed (Nitin Ganatra) as the feelings between the pair will be revisited in upcoming episodes.

"Obviously the spark's there," she explained. "I think every woman is sitting at home thinking, 'Go on, Jane!' So now they're both single and obviously there's things that have been spoken and said. Now they're single, perhaps something might come of it.

"I think it's brilliant that Jane, who is the normal woman - she's not the glamourpuss or anything - does get these moments where she gets the guy. I think there's a lot that will unfurl over the next few months."

EastEnders continues tonight at 7.30pm on BBC One.
