No plans to return - Michelle Ryan
Even though nobody has asked her to come back, Michelle says that she's moved on from playing Zoe.
Michelle Ryan has revealed that she has no plans to return to EastEnders.
Michelle insisted she has no interest in returning to Albert Square, saying: "It's like I wouldn't go back to school. I just believe that sometimes in life you're like a shark - you have to keep moving through water otherwise you'll die."
She added: "For me, once I've worked on something and it's finished, it's like an ex-boyfriend: you don't go back to them. I've done it with my heart and soul, so I wouldn't go back because it's not part of my make-up to do so. I think it's important to do different things."
Michelle - who next stars in British movies The Man Inside and Cockneys Vs Zombies, and is set to star in the West End musical revival of Cabaret with Will Young - has a soft spot for the soap.
"It was great to be a part of it, a fantastic opportunity and it does open doors but then it also feels nice to move on," she said.
