Darren – played by Charlie G Hawkins – is the only remaining family member in Albert Square as they have departed gradually over the years.
However Charlie recently announced he was leaving the show at the end of 2011 – and David, who played his screen dad Keith Miller, said he took this as a sign he would not be asked to return.
“Darren is indeed the last of the Millers, so I don’t know how that works out for the rest of us who might have wanted to return at some point,” he said.
“It would have been nice if he’d had a little wedding and we could’ve all turned up and had a reunion. I enjoyed my time on EastEnders immensely and of course I would go back.”
However David added that he was sure his former screen son would go on to bigger things.
“He’s a young fella with his whole career in front of him,” he said, “and obviously doing EastEnders gives you a fantastic profile. I hope he gets an amazing exit story.”
