EastEnders star teases the return of this LEGENDARY character

We’d love to see him back on the Square

EastEnders legend Ricky Butcher could be about to make a return to the Square, that’s if June Brown gets her way.

June, who plays Dot Branning in the soap, is apparently trying to get Sid Owen back on the Square as Ricky Butcher and has even offered to speak to show bosses about the idea.

Ricky was last seen in the soap in 2012 but with his daughter Tiffany recently returning to Albert Square, it seems like the ideal time for him to make a reappearance.

Speaking to OK! Magazine Sid said: “June was trying to convince me to come back to EastEnders. She was like, “I’m going to have a word and get you back.” You do miss the routine sometimes and that camaraderie – it’s very family orientated because your friends are there.”

Sid made his debut on the soap way back in 1988 and is best remembered for his fiery relationship with Bianca.
