EastEnders fans remember clue that ‘proved’ Fatboy is alive months before cameo

EastEnders fans couldn’t help but celebrate the sudden return of fan-favourite character Fatboy during last night’s (August 29) gripping episode.

Beloved actor Ricky Norwood made a cameo appearance in the flashback scene with Cindy Beale on the BBC One soap, and now fans are convinced he could have been alive this whole time.

The soap star was “killed off” in a horrifying scene back in 2015 during a storyline with Vincent Hubbard, but viewers never saw a body leaving many hopeful that he managed to get out of Walford alive.

After Cindy’s return to the Square, fans are convinced that he knows the witness protection officer Mary, and is also in witness protection himself and could made his own return from the “dead” in the near future.

And it appears as though EastEnders bosses are on board after they dropped a subtle clue about his upcoming return eight months ago.

Loyal fans will remember how we bid a heartbreaking farewell to Dot Cotton, who he was extremely close to during his time in Walford.

Whilst fans were surprised by the shocking return of Ian Beale, Fatboy was sadly nowhere to be seen, but he made sure to say goodbye to his close pal in another way.

Eagle-eyed fans noticed a clue that proves that he is still alive, and hinted at his returned to the BBV soap.

Reiss was seen opening a series of letters and cards of condolences sent to Sonia and one caught people’s eye, with the significance becoming even clearer now.

In one scene, Reiss can be seen holding a With Deepest Sympathy card with a clear message written on it.

The message reads; “Mrs B – Forever in my heart. Arthur” which was signed off with a kiss.

Fans were left utterly shellshocked by the kind gesture, as they recalled Fatboy was known for always calling Dot Mrs B and his real name is Arthur.

Ricky has previously excited fans when he spoke about a return to the BBC soap, explaining: “I mean, it’s EastEnders and if you’re a fan of EastEnders then you’ll know that there are many characters that have died and come back.
