ichard Blackwood says he would "never rule out" an "EastEnders" return, but he has something else "quite big" coming up soon.
The 46-year-old star may have some more time on his hands after he was eliminated from "Dancing on Ice" last night (20.01.19), but it doesn't look like he'll be reprising his role as Vincent Hubbard anytime soon.
He said: "I've got a movie coming out, also there's some other stuff that is huge.
"But "EastEnders", I would never rule it out. They were good to me, so I've got love for them.
"But there is something else, which is quite big."
But Richard admitted he would be prepared to head back to Walford if show bosses gave him a great storyline.
When asked if he would return if the plot was right, he replied: "Of course, absolutely, I've got love for them."
The star was disappointed to exit "Dancing on Ice" on Sunday, and insisted he and his pro skating partner Carlotta Edwards had "a lot more" to give.
He added to "Lorraine": "I don't believe we were ready to go yet. There was a lot more [to give].
"You could see, the dance, it was very strong."
Last year, Richard admitted the door was "slightly ajar" about a potential Albert Square return.
He said: "It's slightly ajar. I can see the guys in there and they're like, "Richard, how's it going?" I'm like, "Yeah, just checking. We good? My family still there?"
""EastEnders" was really good for me. It's a fast machine. It taught me you don't have the luxury of taking the time to overly rehearse.
"It's very quick but it gets you to that place of landing it straight away and trusting it.
"It's like a master-class. I'm very fortunate."
