EASTENDERS boss Chris Clenshaw has confirmed more fan-favourite characters are set to return.
The Sun on Sunday told today how Jacqueline Jossa will make a full-time comeback as EastEnders' Lauran Branning.
Now Chris has teased the surprises aren't over yet.
He said: "There will be some characters returning in the not-too-distant future. They will be announced soon. Watch this space."
Executive producer Chris also revealed some new faces will appear towards the end of the year.
He added to the Daily Star: "We have got some new characters coming that are arriving soon."
Speaking of her full time return, Jacqueline told us: "I’m really excited. It’s such an amazing time to be back as there is so much buzz around EastEnders at the moment. I’ve been watching and loving it like a fan.
“Walford holds a special place in my heart, so it really does feel like coming home.”
A telly source said: “Jacqueline’s return as Lauren Branning is going to spell lots of drama in Albert Square.
“The character has a lot of history and scores to settle, she is definitely going to bring the drama.
“Bosses are staying tight-lipped about when fans will see her return on-screen."
