We all know that Ross Kemp is back at work on EastEnders as Grant Mitchell, but now there's actually picture proof.

Extreme World star Ross shared a photo of himself via Twitter posing on Albert Square.

Yes, if you didn't already know, Grant Mitchell is back!

Ross captioned the photo: "Back on the square! #EastEnders #mitchellsreunited @bbceastenders."

Ross has already been keeping fans updated about his stint back on the soap. He was back on set earlier this week and has been hard at work learning the scripts, which also means a lot of early morning starts.

Ross' return as Grant ties in with Dame Barbara Windsor's exit from the soap, as Peggy Mitchell will lose her battle with cancer. Danniella Westbrook is also set to briefly reprise her role as Peggy's daughter Sam Mitchell.

When Ross' return was announced in January, executive producer Dominic Treadwell-Collins, said: 'We are all so excited finally to have Ross back on the Square - and to have Ross Kemp, Barbara Windsor, Steve McFadden, Letitia Dean and Gillian Taylforth all on screen together at the same time as Peggy makes an exit like no other, this promises to be something very special."

Ross first appeared in EastEnders in 1990. He left in 1999 but made a couple of brief returns to the show, his last being in 2005.
