Dancing on Ice finalist Sam Attwater has said that he would definitely consider a return to EastEnders if soap bosses asked him to come back.

The actor – who is set to compete against Laura Hamilton and Chloe Madeley in the final of the skating show on Sunday – found fame in the show as Leon, although left Albert Square last autumn in Fatboy’s ice-cream van.

However he has admitted he would not rule out reprising the role.

“EastEnders for me was an amazing time and I do miss it and I miss everyone there. I don’t know what’s in store next,” Sam said.

“If I was asked to go back I’d definitely consider it, but I’ve had a few castings and a few meetings and I’m still waiting to hear on a few jobs, so who knows what’s in store for me. Hopefully something great.”

The 24-year-old joked that he could also have shown off some of his new-found skating skills the last time he was there.

“Last year when I was there you could have skated through the Square to be honest!” Sam added.
