Former EastEnders star Paul Nicholls has admitted that he barely remembers his time on the soap.

The actor landed the role of Walford's Joe Wicks when he was 16 and played the character for nearly two years in 1996 and 1997.

However, Nicholls - now 32 - told PA: "I can't really remember it. It's really weird. I remember driving to work and being on set a few times, but if I ever look back now, it's just blank.

"I just can't really remember being in it. I do recall coming out of EastEnders and the attention dying down 50% in the first six months, and then a couple of years later it was 95%."

EastEnders fans recently saw Joe's father David (Michael French) return to Albert Square for a short return stint tying in with Pat Evans's emotional exit storyline.

Meanwhile, Nicholls is now starring in ITV1's Law & Order: UK, playing DS Sam Casey.
