How’s this for a thrill, EastEnders fans? Hard man Grant Mitchell is to put in a cameo appearance this week, prior to his comeback for mum Peggy’s sad demise.
Soap bosses are remaining tight-lipped as to when viewers will get their first glimpse of Grant, but we are told that actor Ross Kemp will feature at some point in the next four episodes.
The upcoming storyline will see Grant told that Pegg is ailing – the prospect of losing his mother then bringing him back to Walford. But what will happen when Grant and Phil come face to face?
Speaking recently about his return, Kemp said: “When I was approached about returning to EastEnders for Barbara Windsor’s final episodes, it was something I could not turn down.
“Barbara is a very close friend so when I learned of the storyline, it felt right that the Mitchell brothers are reunited with their mother for the last time.
“I am really looking forward to going back to EastEnders and filming what are set to be some classic EastEnders episodes.”
