The 37-year-old singer-turned-actress will reprise her role as Kandice Taylor - the younger sister of Albert Square loudmouth Karen Taylor (Lorraine Stanley) - and she is keen to get up close and personal with Queen Vic landlord Mick Carter, admitting it would be "fun" to act alongside the 'Football Factory' star.

She said: "I won't beat around the bush - a scene with Danny Dyer would be brilliant.

"I think that Mick would humour Kandice's personality - but she would probably be too busy flirting. That would be fun.

"When my new scripts came through the door, I saw that I had scenes in the Queen Vic and went, 'Oh my God!' "

The former 'Primeval' star's second stint on 'EastEnders' will only see Kandice return for a handful of episodes, but Hannah would love to make it a hat-trick at some point.

She said: "It works well for me to dip in and out, so I'd be honoured if they did ask me back - you never know what is going to happen.

"I'd love it if Kandice lost all of her money and had to come grovelling to Karen. You can imagine her without all of her fancy clothes, and how she'd feel about not being able to get her nails done."

But the original S Club 7 singer admits it was "daunting" waiting to see if her 'EastEnders' debut would be met with a positive reaction.

She added to Inside Soap magazine: "I couldn't wait to return. 'EastEnders' is a huge show, and it was daunting wondering how I would be received - so I was overwhelmed by the positive response.

"I've loved playing the over-the-top aspects of Kandice - from her dog and car, to her make-up and hair."

Hannah previously admitted she was delighted to have joined the soap.

She said: "I'm over the moon to be joining the show, it's such a huge part of British telly.

"I'm really looking forward to getting started and I can't wait to see the Square in the flesh. Walford here I come."

In December, Kandice gave Karen £1,000 to help pay off debt collectors, but she will need help from the Albert Square resident upon her return.
