Actress Barbara Windsor has said she has been asked "a couple of times" to reprise her role as Peggy Mitchell in EastEnders and is "tempted" but "not quite ready".

In an interview on ITV's This Morning, Windsor said: "I miss EastEnders - I absolutely do, I loved it.

"But I was exhausted when I left, absolutely exhausted.

"They asked me to go back recently... they've asked me a couple of times, but I think about it and I don't sleep.

"I am tempted, that's the point.

"But Scott [Mitchell, husband] says you have to really think about it because towards the end I was so exhausted and not sleeping at night and waking up looking at the script - it became too much part of my life.

"If you're like me, I take every single job like it's my last time... which it might be!

"And if I'm called in at six-thirty, I'm in at six... it's my own fault. When they asked me to go back I got all very excited - but I'm not quite ready for it."
