There’s still time to enter this week’s caption competition so get scribbling and make us all laugh. Hey soapsters, how would you like to see Martin Kemp return to EastEnders as the infamous Steve Owen? That’s not possible, I hear you all saying, cos Steve died in a car explosion back in 2002. Well, that may be true, but apparently the Spandau Ballet star has admitted that he’s eager to return to the show.
In an interview with Closer magazine, Martin Kemp recently stated: "Working on EastEnders was the best job I ever had. I want the producers to ring me up and get me back on the show…Steve was blown up, but I could come back as his evil twin!"
Can you believe that guys…Kemp hankering for a return to the set of EastEnders. You’d think that the recent success of Spandau Ballet’s reunion would be enough to keep the ex Walford star busy, but it would appear that he’s slowly changing his tune about the possibility of a return to the show.
Back in 2006 the Spandau star said that Steve should never rise from the dead, saying: "You can’t come back after dying in a explosion. I couldn’t go back like that."
But should Kemp consider going back to EastEnders? Well, Dirty Den returned to Albert Square after we’d all been led to believe that he’d kicked the bucket, and how about that classic moment in the hit 1980s soap, Dallas, when the supposedly dead Bobby Ewing stepped out of the shower alive and well…It just goes to show that anything’s possible in soap land.
But I tell you what, if Martin Kemp were to ever appear in EastEnders (even as Steve Owen’s evil twin), I think that his return would certainly go down in soap history as ‘the’ most unbelievable soap comeback of all time.
So, what do you think guys, should Martin Kemp consider a return to Albert Square? Let us know your thoughts by leaving a comment.
That’s all for now, the results of the caption competition will be announced on Friday. Got a comment about your favourite soap, this blog or anything else? Share it with me.
