Speaking to the Daily Star, Derek states: “In December and January, I am going back to make a couple of episodes. I don't know what the storyline is but I am booked."

Meanwhile, an ‘EastEnders’ source has told Digital Spy that the details of Derek’s comeback are yet to be finalised.

"It hasn't been confirmed if Derek will be returning, as it is still a little while off yet as we are still at the planning stages,” the source explains.

In recent months, a number of characters have returned to the soap, including Stacey Slater - played by Lacey Turner - and Rainie Cross, played by Tanya Franks.

Derek’s return comes ahead of the soap’s 30th anniversary celebrations, which will take place in February 2015.
