‘EastEnders’ Spoilers: Fatboy Could Return, According to Ricky Norwood

Anything can happen in the land of soaps.

Ricky Norwood has revealed that he thinks his ‘EastEnders’ character Fatboy could potentially make a comeback - despite the fact he was killed off last Christmas.

The dramatic festive episodes saw Fatboy accidentally sent to his death by Ronnie Mitchell, and though we didn’t see his body, we got a pretty good impression of the state of things when Vincent Hubbard did.

However, this is Soapland, and Ricky has now admitted that he sees no reason why his character couldn’t turn up in Walford again.

Speaking to the Daily Express, he explains that while Fatboy did *technically* die, we didn’t actually see it and, well… this is ‘EastEnders’.

“I don’t know, to my knowledge, I got told that he died in the boot,” he says. “I wasn’t physically in the boot. I didn’t ever shoot any scenes in the boot, it was all the stunt team. I mean there’s always a possibility. The fans tell me that there’s a possibility.

“Do you know how many plot twists there’ve been in nearly every storyline that has happened since I have left that people are like ‘yes, you’re coming back!’?”

Turning his attention to a recent ‘EastEnders’ plot, Ricky adds that many fans thought Fatboy was Ronnie’s stalker earlier this year, adding: “Ronnie had a stalker, ‘yes it’s you bruv, it’s you bruv, I’ve seen, I’ve heard it’s you’.

“Look, I don’t know. I haven’t had any phone calls. I haven’t had a meeting. The last time I was down there was to say goodbye to my good friend Nitin Ganatra. Maybe that’s where it came from.”

If Fatboy did come back, he wouldn’t be the first soap character to be seemingly resurrected.

Den Watts and Kathy Beale both famously came back from the dead in ‘EastEnders’, while more recently, ‘Neighbours’ announced that an old fan favourite is returning, over a decade after “dying”.
