The house move came days after Ricky Butcher made his long-awaited return to EastEnders, 10 years after saying goodbye to Walford.

The character – played by Sid Owen – has reunited with his mischievous sister Janine Butcher (Charlie Brooks), and she didn’t look too happy to see him.

Ricky’s return comes amid Janine’s spiraling behaviour in which she’s lying to fiancé Mick about the health of their baby amid jealousy over his closeness with ex-wife Linda (Kellie Bright).

Speaking about his return the actor said: ‘I’m delighted to back at EastEnders. I can’t wait to see what Ricky Butcher has been up to these past few years and how he’s going to react to seeing some familiar faces including old flames. I’m excited to see the drama unfold.’

Speaking about his cocaine troubles, Sid said: ‘It’s recreational then all of a sudden it’s like, ”Hang on, I’ve got to get through pages of scripts, and then go to work”.
