‘EastEnders’ fans could be in for a treat, as Steven Beale actor Aaron Sidwell has hinted that actor Ben Hardy, who plays his on-screen son Peter, could be making a comeback.

Ben broke our hearts when he left in 2015, but according to Aaron, he would potentially say yes to returning to the soap.

Come back, Ben! 

When Steven arrived in the Square earlier this year, fans were shocked to find he was in a relationship with Lauren Branning, the mother of Peter’s child.

Aaron has now weighed in on the matter during a chat with Inside Soap, telling the magazine: “I would like to see Ben Hardy reprise his role of Peter and to see a showdown between him and Steven for Lauren.

“I think Ben is passionate about the show, and that he would probably be interested in coming back if the timing and story were right.

“Peter is always going to be a fixture in the story, considering that he and Lauren have a child together that Steven is raising.”

Someone needs to make this happen.

Since leaving, ‘EastEnders’, Ben has gone on to achieve big things, and starred in the latest ‘X-Men’ movie, alongside Jennifer Lawrence and Oscar Isaacs.

He’s not the only soap star to swap the British weather for some LA sunshine, though.
