Soap-star heavyweight Adam Woodyatt appeared on Channel 4’s Sunday Brunch alongside reality star Vicki Pattinson and TV presenter Ellie Taylor. After 35 years of playing Ian Beale on EastEnders, the actor has taken on a new project. Taking centre stage, Woodyatt has been cast for Peter James’ theatre production of Looking Good Dead. Presenters Simon Rimmer and Miquita Oliver quizzed the award-winning performer about a potential return to Watford.  

Oliver, who was standing in for Lovejoy, made reference to Adam being considered an “EastEnders actor” which meant someone who will always be remembered as their character in the soap, regardless of any future TV roles.

Adam joked: “I think as long as I live, I’m still going to be seen as Ian Beale.

“It doesn’t matter what I do, what else I do, where I go, Ian Beale is always going to be a part of my life.”

An eager Simon chirped: “We’ve got to ask the question, Adam.”

In jest, Adam mocked: “Before you get any further.” 

Host Miquita giggled and exclaimed: “We’re running out of time and you’re not going to answer this question we need to ask!”

Although his return to the soap hasn’t been confirmed, Simon didn’t hesitate to ask the pressing question. 

In a serious tone, the celebrity chef asked: “Are you coming back [to EastEnders]?”

Without hesitation, the I’m A Celeb star confessed: “I don’t know.”

“It’s not just my decision to make, it’s also EastEnders’. 

“I left because of the way the storyline was going, because Ian needed to go.

“Not me going, ‘I wanna leave’, or them saying, ‘You’re going!’, that was the storyline.”

Ian was last seen back in January when he left in the middle of the night after discovering his wife Sharon Mitchell (Letitia Dean) had been poisoning him.

Rimmer then wondered: “Are you missing being Ian Beale?”

To which Woodyatt revealed: “No because I’m having the time of my life.”

Co-host Oliver pointed out: “Yeah, you seem to be!”

Before the Ian Beale star reiterated: “I’m having a fantastic time.”

While Tim Lovejoy was on holiday, former Popworld star Miquita Oliver took his place alongside Simon Rimmer.

Although it is yet to be confirmed when Lovejoy is set to return, the TV cook did reveal viewers would see him next week.
