Ross Kemp has made quite a surprising revelation about his former EastEnders costar Steve McFadden! Despite the fact the pair played onscreen brothers for a number of years on the BBC soap, Ross has admitted he doesn't like to be in the same room as Steve for one very specific reason. "Everyone always asks for 'Phil and Grant' selfies," he told the Sun at the National Television Awards, on Tuesday night. Despite not wanting to take pictures with Steve, the pair are still very much on good terms.

Ross played Steve's on-screen brother Grant Mitchell in EastEnders

Ross, who played Grant Mitchell from 1990 till 1999, confessed that he was "open" to coming back to the BBC soap after his brief return to the show in 2016 for his on-screen mum Peggy's funeral. Last year, he said: "It was good to work with Steve [McFadden] again and see Adam [Woodyatt], Tish [Letitia Dean] and other members of the cast. Would I return again? Never say never." Ross, who is now known for his hard-hitting documentary series Extreme World, rose to fame when he starred as Grant in the BBC soap in the nineties. In 2007, the actor-turned-investigative journalist's documentary Ross Kemp on Gangs won a BAFTA for best factual series.

In September, Ross became a proud father to twins. The actor took to Twitter to announce that his wife Renee O'Brien had welcomed two little girls, called Ava and Kitty. The couple, who have been married since 2012, are already parents to a little boy, who was born in April 2015, while Ross also shares a son with his makeup artist ex-partner Nicola Coleman.
