EastEnders boss Sean O’Connor is bringing Dean Gaffney back to the soap to reprise his role as Robbie Jackson.
Viewers last saw Robbie back in 2015 when he paid a visit to his family revealing he’d separated from his partner, Nita.
After living in India for a number of years, Robbie made the decision to move to Milton Keynes for a fresh start. Now fans will have to wait and see what brings Robbie back home to the Square again.
Speaking about his return, Dean said: “I’m really happy to be back. I’m so lucky to be given the chance to work again with such a talented group of people. A big thank you to Sean and the team. I think it’s going to be a lot of fun.”
Sean added: “I’m thrilled to welcome back Dean as Robbie Jackson, one of EastEnders’ most loved and most popular characters.
“Bridge Street Market has never quite been the same without Robbie policing it in his hi-viz jacket. Dean brings a wonderful warmth and fun to his portrayal of Robbie and I’m sure that audiences will take him to their hearts again, just as they have always done.”
