Could EastEnders fans see the new Phil and Grant Mitchell on screen?

Well, if actor Jamie Borthwick has his way, then yes, they could!

Harry as Ben.

Jamie, who plays Jay Brown on the soap, reckons Jay and his (kind of) on-screen brother Ben Mitchell could be the next duo to take over Albert Square.

Jamie told The Mirror: "I just think their potential is really strong and me and Harry [Reid] get on amazingly well and I think it would be upsetting if they didn't do the whole Phil and Grant brother thing.

"I think it's all there and it needs to be done."

Could Jay and Ben really be the new rulers of Walford? Well, we're still hoping that Ross Kemp will make a return as hard man Grant.

Rumours have been swirling for a while now, and with a string of Mitchell faces popping up over the New Year, we're still keeping our fingers crossed that Grant will be back too.
