EastEnders returnee Ross Kemp, who plays Grant Mitchell, has shared a couple of images ahead of his dramatic return later this Spring.

Kemp is returning to the soap after a ten year absence, and returned to filming yesterday (April 6th).

Today, Kemp shared an image of himself back in Grant’s iconic leather jacket in front of the Albert Square sign.

In reality, Ross Kemp is returning to the soap to bid farewell to on-screen-mum Barbara Windsor, who decided she wants her alter-ego to have a proper send off following an on-screen death.

Peggy’s final scenes and Grant’s return will air this Spring on BBC One.
