Ross Kemp who plays Grant Mitchell and soon to return was spotted out on the tiles with on-screen mum Barbara Windsor. The pair met up for dinner alongside Barbara's husband, Scott, and Ross' wife Renee O'Brien.
Ross originally left EastEnders to pursue his journalism career but Grant will sensationally return in the spring when he hears the news of his mothers illness. It will mark 10 years since he last appeared in the soap.
When asked about his return Ross said: “When I was approached about returning to EastEnders for Barbara’s final episodes, it was something I could not turn down.
“Barbara is a very close friend so when I learned of the storyline, it felt right that the Mitchell brothers are reunited with their mother for the last time."
