Honey Mitchell to return to Albert Square
In a year of shock returns in Albert Square, Kathy Beale is back having faked her own death, Robbie Jackson is set to return with his dog Wellard Two - and it has been revealed Honey Mitchell will also make a comeback.
Honey, played by Emma Barton, was married to Billy and the couple had two children together - William and Janet.
But she left Walford in 2008 after three years when their marriage fell apart.
Viewers briefly saw her return in 2014 when she revealed her plans to move to Canada.
After an explosive visit, Honey left with her son for a new life abroad, but left Janet with her father.
Speaking about her return, Barton said: "I was absolutely delighted to be asked to return to the Square.
"Cliche as it sounds, but it's like coming home. I've had a wonderful time treading the boards but can't wait to put Honey's shoes back on and find out what's she's been up to and what the future has in store."
Viewers will see Honey Mitchell return to the Square later this year.
