For those old school EastEnders fans, you might recognise Ricky Norwood in the third instalment of The Princess Switch trilogy, The Princess Switch 3: Romancing The Star.

That's because Ricky played the beloved Fatboy in the soap.

Watch the trailer below to see if you can spot him:

Did you clock him reprising his role as one of Fiona's minions?

That's right, Ricky is back playing Reggie alongside Florence Hall as Mindy - the minions of Lady Fiona, the cousin of Stacy DeNovo and Lady Margaret Delacourt of Montenaro, a pair of döppelgangers who switch lives in the first Princess Switch film, all played by Vanessa Hudgens.

In the trailer, you can watch him prove to be quite impressed by Lady Margaret's impression of Lady Fiona.

Ricky Norwood, who played Arthur "Fatboy" Chubb made his debut on EastEnders in January 2010 and quickly became a fan favourite. Fatboy was one of the four main characters in the first series of E20, an online spin-off of EastEnders for younger viewers. After E20 came to an end in 2011, Fatboy became part of the main EastEnders cast.

Ricky initially appeared with Lady Fiona in The Princess Switch 2: Switched Again, and EastEnders fans were super surprised to see the familiar face on their screens.

One person tweeted: "pls i cant get over the fact Fatboy is in Princess Switch 2".

Someone else said: "EXCUSE ME as if Fatboy from Eastenders is in The Princess Switch: Switched Again".

Another person expressed the shock they had too: "imagine my surprise when i watched the princess switch sequel to see FATBOY".

But all round, people were loving see their fave EastEnder again: "Today I'm living for the fact that Fatboy is in the new Princess Switch film".

Ricky first shared that he would be reprising his role as Reggie last Christmas when he shared an Instagram post of the Princess Switch 3 script at a table read.

He posted it alongside a caption that read: "Guess whooos Back !!!! So happy and grateful to be back doing what I love 💛#princessswitch3 #thereturnofreggie #theprincessswitch #theprincessswitchswitchedagain💛".
