The 53-year-old actor, who has played Ian Beale on the BBC soap since it began in 1985, took an extended break from the show in January and originally stated that he would return in mid-2022. However, speaking to reporters ahead of his stint on I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!, Woodyatt revealed his contract with the BBC had expired and he had "no plans" to return to Albert Square.

"Why have I finally said yes? Because I am not in EastEnders. That is the honest answer," he said, reports The Sun. "I am not in contract with the BBC so I can come and do it. It's the first chance I've had. I'm just quite happy doing what I'm doing at the moment, which is doing I'm a Celeb."
