EastEnders’ Bradley Branning could be heading back to the BBC One soap as part of a “long-lost twin” storyline, according to AI.
The character, played by Charlie Clements, made his Walford debut back in 2006 and established himself as a fan favourite for his blossoming romance with Stacey Slater. The pair got married but eventually split after he discovered her affair with his dad Max in an explosive Christmas Day episode.
However, the pair eventually reconciled, much to fans delight. But their relationship was rocked after Stacey admitted she was raped by villainous Archie Mitchell (Larry Lamb) and had fallen pregnant with his child.

Then in 2010, and after four years on the soap, Bradley was killed off. After being chased by police on the room of the Vic, and in one of the saddest moments the soap has ever seen, Bradley fell and subsequently passed away.
However, in a major and epic twist, it has now been claimed that Bradley could be returning to Walford. But in the form of a “long-lost twin" storyline.
Daily Star has quizzed one of the world’s most popular artificially intelligent “creative” tools Bard AI to see if Bradley Branning could head back to EastEnders. It said: “Yes, Bradley Branning could return to EastEnders.”
The system added: “His character was killed off in 2010, but soap opera characters have been known to come back from the dead before.” Bard AI then said: “It is also possible for Bradley Branning to return to EastEnders as a long-lost twin” before listing reasons why.
The AI program explained how bringing Bradley back as a twin would add “shock value.” It said: “A long-lost twin returning to a soap opera is a classic trope that is often used to generate shock value and surprise viewers.

“It would be a big twist to reveal that Bradley had a twin brother who was never mentioned before, and it would be interesting to see how his family and friends would react to his return,” the system added:
Another reason that AI reckons Bradley could be brought back is to do with the fans. The program said: “Bradley was a popular character with EastEnders fans, so bringing him back in the form of a long-lost twin would be a way to please viewers. It would also be a way to bring back some of the nostalgia from the early 2000s, when Bradley was at the center of some of the show's biggest storylines.”
