The 43-year-old actor started a one-year break from the soap last year which coincided with his flame-haired character being wrongly convicted for the murder of Ian’s (Adam Woodyatt) daughter Lucy Beale (Hetti Bywater), when the killer was actually his son Bobby Beale (Eliot Carrington).

By David Milliken KELLINGTON, England (Reuters) - As farmer Guy Poskitt looks across a field of pumpkin seedlings, he worries how he will get them planted and picked in future if Britain votes next month to leave the European Union and closes the door on migrant workers. "I cannot run my business without migrant workers," Poskitt said after a team at his Yorkshire farm had finished planting thousands of seedlings which will grow and ripen in time for Halloween. Such workers are a major factor in Britain's June 23 referendum on staying in the EU, where laws mandate freedom of movement.

The “floating” stairways, in Liaocheng City, in East China’s Shandong Province, don’t have handrails and seemed to serve no particular purpose, leading locals to believe they were set to be some sort of elaborate balcony. Simple banisters have been installed on the stairways, which have been fitted to every building in the residential block.

On Android, Google's mobile operating system, it is the smartphone manufacturers — not Google — who are responsible for pushing out software updates to users.

English football's biggest club seem to have secured the services of the sport's most colourful manager after Jose Mourinho, according to Sky TV reports, agreed personal terms with Manchester United on Tuesday. After a trophy-laden career with Porto, Chelsea, Inter Milan and Real Madrid, Mourinho is set to replace Dutchman Louis van Gaal, who was sacked on Monday, with a remit to bring back the glory days the club once took for granted under Alex Ferguson. The 53-year-old, sacked by Chelsea in December seven months after winning his third Premier League title at the London club over two spells, had been constantly linked with the United job as Van Gaal struggled to make an impression at Old Trafford.
