Denise Van Outen wants to return to EastEnders

Denise Van Outen would love to see her 'EastEnders' character stirring up more trouble.

The 40-year-old star appeared in the BBC One soap as glamorous businesswoman Karin earlier this year and tricked her lover Max Branning (Jake Wood) into signing over the car lot to his arch rival Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden) and Denise has now confessed she'd love to film more episodes and cause even more chaos.

She told BANG Showbiz: "There has been conversation [about me going back into 'EastEnders'] but the thing is I'm doing [the play] 'Sweet Charity' so I can't at the moment because I'm so tied up with rehearsals throughout August.

"I think my character could just cause more trouble. She's already stirred up a little bit, but she could definitely do some more. There's always room for more trouble in Albert Square."

Meanwhile, Denise previously revealed that she and Jake discussed whether or not to use tongues ahead of their kissing scenes.

She explained: "I looked at the script and said, 'What an ice breaker!' Obviously I've watched Jake on 'Strictly' [Come Dancing] so I was a massive fan but I've never met him before, so my first scene we had to kind of get it on ... But he's lovely.

"And actors have a discussion about what you can or can't do - the rules! Because some people like to really go for it. We were just acting with passion. The discussion is about whether you use tongues and we decided ... There were no tongues involved at this stage."
