    Adam Woodyatt does not know if or when he will return to EastEnders

    I’M A Celebrity’s Adam Woodyatt has admitted he does not know if or when he will return to EastEnders.

    The actor, known to millions as Ian Beale since the soap started in 1985, is on a break from the show. And he revealed his contract with the BBC has expired.

    Speaking before checking in at Gwrych Castle, he said of going on I’m A Celeb: “Why have I finally said yes? Because I am not in EastEnders. That is the honest answer. 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.”

    Adam, 53, left Albert Square in January for an unexplained break and has been busy with theatre work and helping with his pal’s burger van.

    On a return to Walford, Adam said: “To be honest with you, I don’t know the answer. And it’s also not just my decision, it’s a BBC decision. There’s lots of factors that come into it.

    “I’m just taking it as it comes along. There’s no plan.”

      Explained: When did Corrie begin?

      From the moment Coronation Street first aired live on December 9, 1960, millions have been gripped by the ups and downs of Weatherfield’s residents.

      Its early days portrayed a ­realistic kitchen-sink drama showing the ordinary day-to-day lives of working-class northerners, and the show was considered ground-breaking.

      It is the second longest running soap opera in the UK after The Archers.

      But not everyone liked it. One early critic wrote: “The ­programme is doomed from the outset . . . with its dreary signature tune and grim scenes of a row of terraced houses.”

      Over sixty years on and the signature tune and terraced houses are still there.
