When asked whether he would like to see a character return in the future, he firstly suggested: "I'd love to see the return of Stacey Slater, I thought she was amazing."

Norwood continued: "Peggy Mitchell was also a great bundle of energy. I'd love to see Derek Branning back from the dead! Jamie Foreman is one of the best actors I've worked alongside."

The star also set out his desire for Fatboy to have more scenes with Dot Branning and the Masood family.

"I would always love more time with the Masoods. I'd love more time with Dot Branning," he added. "I love her to pieces. June [Brown] is meticulous. She knows her job inside out.

Zainab sees the state that the boys have been living in whilst she was away.
