Danielle Harold wants Fatboy back on EastEnders

Danielle Harold wants Fatboy to return from the dead.
The ‘EastEnders’ actress – who plays Lola Pearce – made her own Albert Square comeback earlier this year, and she ha revealed she’d love to see Ricky Norwood’s character on the show again, despite the alter ego being killed off four years ago.
Speaking about a possible return, Danielle told Metro.co.uk: "[I want Fatboy back] because we never found out what happened to him."
Viewers haven’t seen Arthur ‘Fatboy’ Chubb since 2015, when the character was bundled into the boot of a car by accident instead of Vincent Hubbard (Richard Blackwood).
Although the vehicle was crushed in a scrap yard, fans never actually saw a body, which means there could be a bit of hope for a potential comeback.
However, the soap’s boss Kate Oates has previously insisted she doesn’t want to bring back former stars for the sake of nostalgia.
After overseeing returns for the likes of Sean Slater (Ron Kazinsky) and Lola, she said: "I think we might be done for now."
Adding that her plan isn’t to "simply" bring back lots of big stars, she explained: "No it isn’t actually, because we’ve got some awesome new castings. So I only want to bring back people who can bring me oodles and oodles of story.
"I want people who earn their keep, who are exciting to watch. I want people who can have big impacts on all the family.
"They’re the people I want to bring back. I don’t want to bring back people for bringing back’s sake – it has to earn it."
