Cora Cross (Ann Mitchell) will make a comeback to EastEnders next week, the first time the character has been seen since December 2015.
Upcoming scenes will find Denise (Diane Parish) forced to visit a food bank when her financial situation takes a further nosedive. But upon arriving, Denise finds that Cora is now working there and opts to flee in embarrassment.
So, will Cora pursue Denise and discover all about her plight?
After all, Cora herself is no stranger to hardship – her last storyline saw the residents of the Square rallying round after she was discovered sleeping rough in a bus shelter.
Friends and neighbours then stormed the local council’s Christmas party – and Cora was subsequently housed. But what has she been up to in her year and a half away from the screen?
You can watch a 60-second rundown of next week’s episodes of EastEnders below.
