Hawkins wants Winstone in EastEnders

EastEnders star Charlie G Hawkins wants Ray Winstone to join the soap.

The young actor, who plays teenage dad Darren Miller, said the Walford-based show would be a good fit for Hackney-born Ray.

Speaking at a private viewing of an exhibition celebrating 25 years of EastEnders, Charlie said: "I'd love Ray to come in - he's very well known, he's an iconic British actor and he's obviously from London, but whether Ray would want to and would do it is another thing."

Ray has previously discussed turning down an EastEnders role, and Sam Womack (Ronnie Mitchell) wanted him to play her screen dad Archie Mitchell.

A recent report claimed the Scum actor was back on the soap's wanted list.

Executive producer Diederick Santer confirmed Ray had been approached in the past, and added: "He knows where we are."
