EastEnders: Aunt Babe returns – and her big secret is revealed

Actress Annette Badland makes her comeback in scenes to be shown next week

Scheming Aunt Babe (Annette Badland) is to make a comeback next week after the Carter clan discovers that she’s made off with Stan’s ashes.


After discovering that Stan’s urn doesn’t actually contain his remains, the penny soon drops that Babe is responsible for the switch. Mick, Shirley and Tina hare off to a caravan park in Ramsgate where they learn that Babe is staying.

Once on site, the Carters find no sign of Babe, but Tina comes across a suspicious photo album. However, just as Shirley is taking a look, they are interrupted by a fuming Babe.

The ashes are eventually recovered and Babe will be seen pleading with her family to let her come back with them. But when they refuse, she reveals that she needs to come clean about what happened to Mick as a baby.

At a nearby cafe, Babe opens up, but when she mentions Heather Trott’s mum Queenie, a suspicious Shirley leaves.

After putting two and two together, Shirley later confronts Babe about her big secret – and, disgusted by what she hears, Shirl is soon taking matters into her own hands…
