EastEnders spoilers: Nick Cotton is back in spooky new Halloween trailer

A new promo spotlights the return of John Altman as Walford's original villain


The BBC has released a new promo highlighting upcoming Halloween drama in Albert Square.


Scenes to be broadcast next week will see Dot (June Brown) believing that she’s seen the ghost of Nick through her window. Lauren (Jacqueline Jossa) is also in a scary night when she decides to chase a spooky figure in a Doctor Who weeping angel mask who’s following her.

The episodes will feature the return of John Altman as Nick to the BBC1 soap after an absence of half a decade away. Speaking recently, the actor said: 

“After a five-year break I’m very pleased and much looking forward to returning to EastEnders. With the promise of some hard hitting and gritty storylines I’m sure the residents of Albert Square will be none too pleased to see Nick Cotton back on the streets of Walford.

“I’m also looking forward to working alongside Declan Bennett and Pauline McLynn. And of course being reunited and working once again with my ‘dear old Ma’, the wonderful June Brown. ”
