Joe Swash fumes at EastEnders exit and admits he was never asked back

I’m A Celeb: Joe Swash and Dean Gaffney take on trial

After winning I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here back in 2008, the 41-year-old has made his return to the all-star series as a late arrival alongside fellow EastEnders star Dean Gaffney.

On Friday’s instalment of the ITV show, the discussion in camp turns to soaps as Countdown star Carol Vorderman questioned if they were both in EastEnders at the same time.

As Joe confessed they were both in it briefly together, Dean shared Joe’s character was in Albert Square when he returned.

Dean, who played Robbie Jackson, first starred in the BBC soap in the early 90s before being written out in 2003.

However, as fans have seen him reprise the role multiple times over the years, Joe asked: “Would you go back again?”

Dean replied: “Yeah” and agreeing, Joe confessed he also wouldn’t mind going back as he reeled over his character’s departure.

He commented: “Purely because of the family. Because you know what you’re doing, how you’re doing it when you’re doing it.

“They’ve never asked me to go back in again, not once mate!”

‌Touching on how Mickey was written out, Joe fumed to his campmates about the lack of drama involved which viewers normally see with a character exit.

He reeled: “[It was] the worst ‘out-ro’ ever. I didn’t even leave at the end of the episode.

“You know you leave and you get the ‘duff duff’? Mine, I went to Norwich to be a bellboy at a hotel and mid-scene just walked in The Vic went, ‘See you later’, turned back to Phil, come to me and I’d gone.

“What? That was it? No duff-duff. I was there five years and not one duff -duff!”

Later on in the episode, Joe confessed it’s not as straightforward to return to a soap as most people would think.

In the Bush Telegraph, he said: “People think I can phone up EastEnders and go, ‘I’m ready to come back now guys.’

“They have not phoned me. Let me make this clear. EastEnders have never phoned me to get me back on the show.”
