Danny then added: "I think when we come out of lockdown I could potentially have the best story I've ever had on the show."

As for the rest of the family, there has been recent speculation that Johnny Carter will return to Walford to take down Gray Atkins.

The evil character - played by Toby-Alexander Smith - has been abusing wife Chantelle Atkins (Jessica Plummer) since they arrived in Walford.

Meanwhile, Johnny left Walford to accept a job offer after trying to help his family fight to keep the Queen Vic.

The character - who has been played by both Reilly and Sam Strike - was also at the centre of a storyline which saw his mum Linda (Kellie Bright) unable to come to terms with his sexuality.

Will Johnny return to finally put Gray behind bars? Watch this space!
