When does EastEnders' Bobby Beale return?

It’s been a while since we last saw Bobby Beale in EastEnders, as the character was locked up after confessing to the murder of his sister Lucy

But that’s all about to chance as the character – who also notably attacked his stepmum Jane (Laurie Brett) with a hockey stick –returns home to Walford after being released – and it’s all change for the character, who’s been recast once again.

The BBC confirmed last month that Bobby was on his way back to the show, following speculation that he was about to come back, with a spokesperson confirming he was soon to be released from the detention centre, where he’s spent the past three years for unlawfully killing his sister.

So just when will Bobby be making his big comeback?

Here’s what you need to know…

When does Bobby Beale return to EastEnders?

It’s official – Bobby will be returning to EastEnders on Friday 14 June.

The character will appear following the grand opening of the Prince Albert, with his grandmother Kathy (Gillian Taylforth) sneaking out of the bash to see him.

And it looks as though the character could run into trouble pretty soon after he makes his reappearance – while the family do their best to keep him out of sight, it’s not too long before he’s seen by Max Branning (Jake Wood).

Given that Max suffered terribly because of Bobby, going to prison for Lucy’s murder while Ian (Adam Woodyatt) and Jane tried to cover up Bobby’s crime, could he be out for revenge?

You’ll just have to tune in to see what happens.

Who is playing Bobby Beale?

As previously mentioned Bobby has been recast, and will be played by actor Clay Milner Russell.

He is the fifth actor to play the character, who was played by Kevin Curran, Alex Frances and Rory Stroud in his younger days.

Eliot Carrington was the most recent actor to play Bobby, taking on the role from 2014-2017.

‘Clay is an exciting new talent that injects a new energy into a fascinating character,’ said EastEnders executive producer Jon Sen.

‘We can’t wait for audience to see the impact Bobby’s arrival will have on the Square.’

EastEnders airs Mondays and Fridays on BBC One at 8pm and on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7.30pm.
