The big announcement came last night at midnight and EastEnders surprised fans by announcing that Ross Kemp would reprise his role as Grant Mitchell.
Twitter hasn’t stopped talking about Grant Mitchell. The story behind his return will be to see off his mother, Peggy Mitchell who is dying with cancer.
The scenes are expected to air later this Spring and Peggy Mitchell will have her two sons by her side for her final scenes. Fans have called for Danniella Westbrook to return also, but nothing has been announced by EastEnders so far.
