ichard Blackwood is launching a clothing line.

The former "EastEnders" actor - who played Vincent Hubbard on the BBC One soap from 2015 to 2018 - is turning his hand to fashion after departing Walford just over a year ago, and he is also looking to "crack America" with his stand-up comedy.

Speaking to The Sun's Bizarre column, he said: "I'm bringing out a clothing range and I'm trying to crack America, because that's always been the one thing I wanted to do.

"The stand-up has been received really well in the US."

While he has swapped Albert Square for America, Richard hasn't ruled out a return to the soap one day.

Speaking in January, 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."

When asked if he would return if the plot was right, he replied: "Of course, absolutely, I've got love for them."

And last year, Richard admitted the door was "slightly ajar" about a potential Walford 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."

Vincent was last seen on screen in April 2018 when he was trapped in a car with one of evil Aidan Maguire's (Patrick Bergin) cronies pointing a gun at him.
