Poll: 'Who's The Daddy?' Revisited

By
Cast your mind back to seven days ago when I posed the question: Who should return for EastEnders' 25th?

You voted in your thousands and I can reveal that the character you'd most like to make a comeback for the show's silver anniversary is...

...drumroll...

Grant Mitchell, played by Ross Kemp, who had 15.6% of the vote!

No surprises there, then. However, I was quite surprised by numbers two and three.

In a close second place was Kat Moon (Jessie Wallace) with 14.5% of the vote, followed by her husband Alfie Moon (Shane Richie) who notched up 13%.

Here's how the rest of the field fared:

Sharon Rickman (Letitia Dean) - 10.8%
Chrissie Watts (Tracy-Ann Oberman) - 6.8%
Cindy Beale (Michelle Collins) - 5%
Carol Jackson (Lindsey Coulson) - 4%
Sonia Fowler (Natalie Cassidy) - 3.8%
Martin Fowler (James Alexandrou) - 3%
Melanie Owen (Tamzin Outhwaite) - 2.7%
David Wicks (Michael French) - 2.7%
Lisa Fowler (Lucy Benjamin) - 2.5%
Little Mo Slater (Kacey Ainsworth) - 2.5%
Simon Wicks (Nick Berry) - 2%
Nigel Bates (Paul Bradley) - 1.7%
Clare Bates (Gemma Bissix) - 1.4%
Beppe Di Marco (Michael Greco) - 1.2%
Dr Harold Legg (Leonard Fenton) - 0.9%
Gita Kapoor (Shobu Kapoor) - 0.3%
Sanjay Kapoor (Deepak Verma) - 0.3%

The remaining 5.1% of the vote, meanwhile, went to the 'Other' category and while a good majority suggested that it'd be fun to bring back Danielle Jones (Lauren Crace) - *sigh* - a variety of different names were also put forward, including Michelle Fowler, (Susan Tully), Nick Cotton (John Altman), Ruby Allen (Louisa Lytton), Sean Slater (Rob Kazinsky) and Sarah Cairns (Alison Pargeter).

Who knows who'll they'll ask back, but I'm sure we can expect a plethora of past faces cropping up in either the main show or at least in the celebratory which must be being planned.

So to this week's vote, which revisits a gem of a question: Who's The Daddy to Heather's baby in EastEnders?



If you remember back to May, I initially polled readers and Minty Peterson (Cliff Parisi) emerged as your favourite.

The story's been rumbling on for months now and after endless text messages, emails, tweets and PMs, we can now whittle down the number of suspects to five. And they are: Billy (Perry Fenwick), Darren (Charlie G Hawkins), Eddie (Will Chitty), Minty and Phil (Steve McFadden).

So, who's your money on now? Still Minty? Or someone else?
