Tony Jordan returns to 'Enders script team
Former EastEnders scriptwriter Tony Jordan has made a comeback to the BBC soap less than 12 months after quitting.

Jordan – who quit the soap in February to create Holby City spin-off HolbyBlue through his own production company Red Planet Pictures – has already penned an episode of the Albert Square drama since his return.

Speaking to The Stage, the BBC's Controller of Continuing Drama Series John Yorke said: "He has come back to write another episode. I can't say too much but it is really exciting."

He added: "We had an idea and we went to him and he said, 'Wow, I have to do that'. He has come back because he could not resist. It is in his blood. He loves it." Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
