Shirley Carter (Linda Henry) is in for a surprise in the coming weeks when a mystery dinner guest is revealed to be Tina’s (Luisa Bradshaw-White) ex-girlfriend Tosh (Rebecca Scroggs).
Before the meal, Shirley’s hopes are high that her son Dean will be dining at the Vic. But when firefighter Tosh shows up, a disappointed Shirl wastes no time in taking pot shots at Tosh before storming off.
However, as these new images released by the BBC reveal, Shirley’s anger will only end up bringing Tosh and her former flame closer together.
On her new role, actress Rebecca Scroggs – who had a guest role in the first series of crime drama Death in Paradise – said: “I’m very excited to be joining EastEnders in my first major television role. I grew up watching the show and it feels amazing to actually be a part of it now! I’m really going to enjoy working with the Carter family, they've brought such great energy to the Square.”
Viewers can see these scenes on Tuesday 25 and Friday 28 February.
