Share article:

oger Griffiths is to return to "EastEnders".

The "Vexed" actor will reprise his role as Keegan Baker's (Zack Morris) father Mitch Baker on the BBC One soap later this year, and his character will attempt to make amends with his son and ex Karen Taylor (Lorraine Stanley).

Roger said: "It feels great to be returning to Albert Square and working with the wonderful cast and crew again, especially the fantastic Taylor family.

"I'm excited for the viewers to learn more about Mitch and see what trouble he gets himself into this time."

Mitch has plenty of making up to do with Karen after he tried to get back with her only for the laundrette worker to discover he had a wife.

Roger has returned to filming but it's not known whether Mitch will try to rekindle his former romance with Karen once again.

Lorraine recently admitted she would love the soap's bosses to cast an Indian actor for her alter-ego to hook up with, after admitting she was hoping Karen and businessman Masood Ahmed (Nitin Ganatra) could get together.

She said: "I thought she was going to go in there for a bit of Asian flavour [with Masood]. I thought they were going to go there but they didn't.

"I think she likes her Indian men. Bring someone in."

News of Roger's return also comes five months after Lorraine hinted the "Batman Begins" star could wing his way back to Walford at some point.

She said: "She's only had it once since Mitch, so either he comes back or she's on the lookout."
