Charlie Clements has said he would never return to EastEnders - even if soap bosses wanted Bradley Branning back as a ghost.

Charlie's character Bradley died in 2010 after taking the rap for his wife Stacey, who had murdered Archie Mitchell, with a police chase leading him to the roof of The Queen Vic, where he fell to his death.

Soap fans were pretty devastated following the death of Bradders, but given that so many characters are brought back from the dead, it's left some of us with the hope that maybe one day Bradley could return - only Charlie isn't so keen on Bradley being resurrected himself.

"I can't say I've watched EastEnders since I left," Charlie told The Sun. "I don't miss it because if I hadn't left I wouldn't be doing other shows which I prefer doing."

Charlie, who said that it was his "decision to leave", added: "They resurrect characters sometimes but even if they wanted Bradley back as a ghost I wouldn't take up that offer. I didn't let them kill me off but before I started on the show I always said that I wanted to do four years and that was it."

However, there is one role that 28-year-old Charlie is eyeing up.... "I would love to be on Game Of Thrones," he declared.

It was just two weeks ago that Charlie appeared on ITV's Loose Women talking about his latest project, playing Henry VIII in Channel 5 docu-series Henry VIII and His Six Wives.

Following his departure from EastEnders, Charlie got a Master's from the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, and the dad-of-two also formed his own theatre company.
