Bobby Davro would like to return to 'EastEnders' - but only for a "few little episodes" and "not too regularly."
The 57-year-old comedian walked away from the BBC One soap in late 2008 following 14 months portraying the lovable cabbie Vinnie Monks but he has admitted he hasn't ruled out a return in the future but it will only be temporarily.
Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz, he said: "I would go back in, I'd love to go back in for a few little episodes and come back out again. But if it doesn't happen it doesn't happen, and if they ask me I'll go. That's what I rather like, I don't want to be there for another year or two.
"I've done that, I've got that T-shirt. Last time they saw me off in a car and they said you can always come back if you want to and maybe I will come back if they ask."
However, the talented actor doesn't know where he'd slot into the storylines if he was brought back in as Vinnie because he doesn't make the effort to watch the soap - and never has.
He explained: "I never watched it, I never watched it when I was on it and I never do now. Occasionally I will, if I'm having my tea. I like the show, I liked being in it. But I wouldn't go in that regularly. I wouldn't want to be typed cast."
