Barbara Windsor isn't ruling out a return to EastEnders as the legendary Peggy Mitchell - and she wants Ross Kemp to join her.

As probably the most popular family in the soap's history, Barbara revealed she wants to see a grand Mitchell reunion with Peggy and Grant back in Walford with Phil.

In recent weeks, reports that Ross will reprise his role as Grant Mitchell has been doing the rumour mill. Let's face it, everyone wants to see Grant back!

Ross himself said "never say never" and Aunt Babe actress Annette Badland did little to dispel the rumours.

Now, Barbara has had her say. Speaking at the Amy Winehouse Foundation dinner, Barbara told reporters: "I did hear the rumour about Ross going back but who knows.

"It would obviously be a great storyline to have Peggy reunited with her boys. Never say never. It could happen."
