The actress, who starred in hits including Terry And June and Absolutely Fabulous, will appear in EastEnders opposite Jessie Wallace's character, Kat Moon, in a single episode this May.
She said: "I have watched EastEnders for years, and have been so impressed by the standard of acting. It was an absolute delight to work with Jessie Wallace and I am very excited to be part of the show."
