Talking to What’s on TV on the BAFTA TV red carpet this evening Adam was keeping his EastEnders’ cards close to his chest, but did say this of the long-awaited family reunion between Peggy and Grant Mitchell (Ross Kemp):
“It’s been great having all the Mitchells back because it means I’ve had a quiet week because they weren’t [filming] in my house!”
Speaking about Peggy’s return to Walford, Adam teased… “I may, or may not, visit.”
But he did have this to say about Ian’s moneymaking deal with Costmart: “No matter what, Ian will always be a capitalist. And I’ve got to say, Costmart, it’s a good deal!”
Speaking ahead of the star-studded ceremony in Royal Festival Hall, London, Adam revealed his aspirations for EastEnders’ in the Soap & Continuing Drama category:
“It would be nice to win because it’s Dom’s [producer Dominic Treadwell-Collins] last one and the episodes we put in were Live Week. But… we all know how hard we all work. If Corrie win it again, they get three in a row, well done to them. If Emmerdale win it – they’ve had a good year, and the same with Holby – we all work hard and are trying to make the best programme we possibly can.”
Before he left us to attend the ceremony, hosted by Graham Norton, Adam dropped a surprise revelation – his favourite TV show is MasterChef Australia!
He said: “It’s my favourite TV programme. We stumbled upon it… and have been hooked on it ever since. I think they’ve got the format absolutely right, it’s a great programme!”
