Amy-Leigh Hickman would "never say never" about returning to "EastEnders".

The "Safe" star played Star "Linzi" Bragg in two short stints in the BBC One soap from 2016 to 2017, and she would be up for returning to the programme after meeting some of her best friends on the show, Tilly Keeper (Louise Mitchell), and Jasmine Armfield (Rebecca Fowler).

She exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "I'd never say never about returning.

"It's weird because that show is still in so much of my personal life. It's where I met the people who are my best friends now.

"So I always associate that job with a lot of happiness. Never say never, I really enjoyed my time there. I see a lot of Tilly and Jasmine, and Shaheen."
