'Dirty Den' actor Leslie Grantham joined Paul Ross to talk about his new book and the chances of him returning to EastEnders.

He tells Paul how he let his imagination run wild on fantasy adventure Jack Bates and the Wizard’s Spell and discusses being recognised in the street, and asked to return to Albert Square - despite being killed off twice already. 

"[Comedian] Joe Pasquale used to say when we walked through the streets, 'people only know me by my voice, but [with] you, you can hear the eyeballs click'," said Grantham, who played Queen Vic owner Den Watts for six years in the popular BBC soap.
