Dominic Treadwell Collins has hinted that with such a limited budget, some of the current cast won’t be here to stay.

Well known names like Denise Van Outen, Richard Blackwood and Bonnie Langford have all recently been signed up for the soap.

However, an EastEnders spokesman said: "There are no current plans for Denise Van Outen to return, nor are any of the cast facing the axe in order for other celebrities to appear."

Denise recently confessed that she would love to return to Walford on a more permanent basis.

"I'd want her to carry on causing trouble in Walford," she told TV Buzz. "It would be nice for her to become a powerful female role.

"But my biggest dream would be to appear in a scene with Peggy Mitchell."
