So, Courtney Mitchell is back on EastEnders for the first time in ten years – but it looks like there are big revelations to come about what she’s been up to this past decade.
Tonight’s episode of the BBC1 soap will pick up where we left off with a worried Courtney trying to get to the bottom of dad Grant’s unusual behaviour and encouraging him to open up about everything that’s happened with his family. It soon becomes clear, though, that they’re both keeping big secrets, but will the truth come out?
Said a show insider: “Strong-willed Courtney is now at university in London but with a troubling time in store for the Mitchells, the feisty student will soon find herself at the heart of her family’s drama over the coming weeks.”
Speaking about the upcoming drama between Courtney and Grant, actress Alice Nokes said: “She adores her dad and their relationship is strong. But I think she wants to hate him and teach him a lesson all the time.
“She feels like the adult in the relationship and that’s not the greatest thing for a teenage girl. But because her mother did die, she felt like she had to up her game and become the responsible party.
“We see in the episodes to come how much she does love and care for him.”
