Matt Lapinskas is considering returning to EastEnders, just in time for Whitney’s wedding.

The Dancing On Ice star – whose real-life girlfriend Shona McGarty plays Whitney – says he’d like to make a temporary return to Albert Square.

The Sun said that Matt hinted that there could be a full Moons reunion at Tyler Moon’s marriage to Whitney Dean.

Viewers saw Matt’s character Anthony Moon go to Spain in the BBC One soap, after upsetting Derek Branning, while David Essex, who played his screen dad Eddie, also left.

But Matt told The Sun: “Shona is very excited about her EastEnders wedding and I’d love to be involved.”

He admitted: “I’d love to go back – not to stay, but to have a beginning, a middle and an end, cause some trouble then leave again. That would be fun.”

He said: “Tyler (Tony Discipline) might text his brother and ask him to come back, so we’ll see what happens there. Anthony is now in Spain with his dad and there could be a Moon clan reunion.”

Matt also joked that if he ever did propose to Shona, the couple would have one obstacle: “She likes the whole Big Fat Gypsy Wedding thing, so if our day did come I think there would be some arguments.

“I’d say, ‘You’re not wearing that!’ And she’ll be like, ‘Yes I am and we’re getting married here with this horse!’,” he joked.
