Anna leaves a message with Junior regarding their father’s fight, with George later shocked as Junior arrives to call off the fight.

Bianca’s return saw Patsy Palmer reprise her role five years after her previous appearance, with the star recently reminiscing on her time on the soap as well as previewing her upcoming scenes.

“I remember coming onto the other lot and just feeling so surreal, because there was Pete Beale and Dot Cotton - I just remember feeling in awe of everybody,” she said.

“It always feels new - you always want to go back with a fresh head. You never really want to go back with the same head - I'm not here with the same mindset that I was when I left. It's a fresh experience, but in exactly the same place.”

EastEnders airs on Mondays - Thursdays at 7.30pm on BBC One. The show also streams on BBC iPlayer, where most episodes drop early at 6am ahead of their TV broadcast.
