    The actor who played Sammy "Zammo" McGuire in Grange Hill in the 1980s is to return to our screens as a new character in EastEnders.

    Child star Lee MacDonald, who's now 50, rose to fame more than 30 years ago as the loveable Zammo, a character who later ran into drug problems.

    MacDonald will appear on the BBC One soap in two episodes this spring.

    He'll play a bus driver, who takes on Mick Carter - played by Danny Dyer - in a radio competition to win gig tickets.

    MacDonald, who after subsequent small roles in The Bill and Birds of a Feather, quit acting to run a south London locksmith and key-cutting firm, said: "I am absolutely chuffed to bits and so excited to be briefly joining the cast of EastEnders.

    "I can't say too much yet but watch this space. Top banana!"
