Joe Swash has fuelled rumours that he could make a huge return to EastEnders, thirteen years after his time as Mickey Miller was cut short.

EastEnders superfans will remember the iconic Miller family who ruled the square throughout the 00s and made household names out of Kara Tointon (Dawn Swann) and Joe.

Parents Keith and Rosie arrived with their twin children Darren and Demi, who had baby Aleesha, and family dog Genghis, with Rosie’s daughter Dawn joining them later in 2005.

You’ll remember that the family had several storylines between them, with the most notable probably being the Dr May Wright trying to steal Dawn’s baby, Summer.

However, the Miller family are no more in Albert Square as not one family member has stayed in the soap – but could Mickey be set for a solo return?

Joe, who is set to marry TV personality Stacey Solomon later this year, recently hinted that he’d love to head back to the BBC soap, telling snack company Peperami, “I’d love to do some more acting this year.

"I would go back to EastEnders as it was unfinished business. During my last stint, I caught meningitis, so I had to take a year off work. It meant I couldn’t get my character involved as much as I wanted to. If I did go back, I’d want to do it properly."

Joe has truly made a name for himself since leaving EastEnders in 2008. He famously entered the I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! Jungle months after and was crowned King of the Jungle that series.

After his appearance, Joe began presenting the I’m A Celebrity spin-off show on the next series and has been presenting and appearing on TV shows ever since. He's basically a permanent fixture on our screens.

He’s also about to become a dad for the third time as fiancé Stacey is currently pregnant with their second child – a baby daughter who is due VERY soon. They are already parents to two-year-old Rex and Stacey has two children, 13 year old Zachary and eight-year-old Leighton, from previous relationships, while Joe co-parents his son Harry with ex Emma Sophocleous.
