Michelle Collins wants EastEnders return

Michelle Collins wants her 'EastEnders' character to come back from the dead.

The 52-year-old actress' character Cindy Beale died during childbirth in prison in 1998, but the star is hoping she could be resurrected because the death happened off-screen.

Michelle's comments come after Kathy Beale's recent return to Walford, despite viewers being told in 2006 she was killed in a road accident.

She said: "If Kathy Beale can go back, there's no reason why Cindy can't.

"It hasn't stopped them writing supposedly dead characters back in the past so I'm sure they could make it work. Everyone seems to be coming back from the dead."

The actress left the BBC One soap in 1998, but is now hoping she could return to the show for the aftermath of her on-screen daughter Lucy Beale's death, which featured as the central part of the show's 30th anniversary celebrations last month when her killer was revealed as her half-brother Bobby Beale.

Speaking about the twists, which were broadcast in a week of live episodes, she said: "It's all anyone is talking about. I'd love to go back now. It'd be great for Lucy's mum to make a shocking reappearance."

However, Michelle - who most recently completed a three-year stint in ITV soap 'Coronation Street' as Rovers Return landlady Stella Price - may not have time to film scenes in Albert Square as she admitted she is in talks to star in Hollywood blockbusters.

She told The Sun newspaper: "I'm off to LA for castings but it's all top secret right now."
