An Eastenders star has teased a possible return to the iconic soap ahead of his visit to Swindon.

Actor and comedian Brian Conley, who has presented the Royal Variety Performance on eight occasions and played several lead roles in the West End, is heading to Swindon for his show 'The 3rd Farewell Tour' at the Wyvern Theatre on Sunday, February 18.

This comes after leaving Walford last year when his character Rocky was imprisoned - but the actor teased in a chat with the Adver that he could return.

“Being in EastEnders meant I really had to work on the accent,” joked Brian.

“Playing Rocky was nerve-wracking at first because the show is so iconic and I look back with very fond memories.

“I am in prison so I haven’t died and that’s a nice thought and I could get off with good behaviour.”

Brian’s daughter Lucy enjoyed watching her dad on the show but found certain scenes of his strange to see.

“I loved your character and it wasn’t that far from who you are I’ve got to be honest,” said the 21-year-old to her dad in the interview.

“I don’t think you would burn down the café though.

“I found it so weird seeing him drink a pint stopped drinking when I was two and also seeing him with someone who isn’t mum.”

Brian added: “Kissing someone else was weird as we used to watch the show as a family so there I was kissing Kathy Beale.

“Being in the Vic drinking a pint I used to hate as the non-alcoholic beer tasted a lot of salt.

The 62-year-old enjoyed his experience on the soap opera and explained to the Adver why he chose to depart.

“It was great fun and it was my choice to leave because you are very restricted in the show as you can’t really do anything else and I wanted a break from that.

“Three years was long enough for me as it has been a wonderful journey and everyone there is so lovely in front of the camera and behind it.

“They are so supportive and I remember Natalie Cassidy who plays Sonia Fowler telling me that they had all been in my shoes and know exactly what it is like to come into the show.

“You are bouncing off and having scenes with iconic characters like Phil Mitchell and being threatened by these characters.

“You think oh my god, I’m in EastEnders, especially when in the iconic Vic and Albert Square.”
