Pam Coker has made a surprise appearance on tonight’s EastEnders, the first time the character has been seen on screen since October 2016.
As fans of the BBC1 soap, Pam and husband Les left Walford for a new life in Worthing after actors Lin Blakley and Roger Sloman were written out.
But scenes just broadcast saw Pam making a temporary return in order to attend Billy and Honey’s flat-warming party and to deliver some welcome news.
With Les out of action due to a gardening accident (hence actor Roger Sloman’s no-show), it was left to Pam to tell Billy that she wanted to make him a partner in the funeral business, which would henceforth be known as Coker & Mitchell.
Pam also found time to have a heart to heart with Ben and share some memories of Paul, before stating that Ben would be welcome to stay with her and Les any time he wished. Either on his own or with a new partner.
But what RadioTimes.com would REALLY want is for Pam (and Les should he so wished) to return to Albert Square full time. We’ve missed you, Pam! Please come back for another visit soon!
