Is this the reunion we’ve all been waiting for? Is Ian (Adam Woodyatt) about to find out that his mum Kathy (Gillian Taylforth) is still alive?
Tonight’s EastEnders (BBC1, 8pm) will see Sharon (Letitia Dean) and Ian hot on the trail of Phil (Steve McFadden), who has arranged to meet the mysterious ‘K’ at St Pancras Station.
Both Sharon and Ian are totally unaware that ‘K’ is actually Kathy and that she’s standing just behind them as they confront a flabbergasted Phil.
But after seeing her son for the first time in years, will Kathy be able to stay away or is Ian about to discover the truth?
Speaking to Radio Times, Gillian Taylforth promised that EastEnders fans will be convinced by the reason given for Kathy’s miraculous resurrection.
“It will be something feasible. You don’t want to see me coming out of the shower,” she said, referencing the notorious resurrection of Bobby Ewing in Dallas.
