EastEnders's Lucy Benjamin is set to make a sensational return to Walford Square, reprising her role as Lisa Fowler.

Lisa, who was last seen on the BBC One soap in 2017, will be returning to the action after discovering that her daughter Louise is pregnant.

Having previously tried to kidnap Louise, Lisa will be back to ensure her daughter is being properly taken care of by father Phil Mitchell, whom she famously shot in 2001.

But it's safe to assume that none of this is going to sit well with the family, particularly Sharon.

On returning to the soap, Benjamin told The Mirror: "Going back to EastEnders feels like going home. I love and adore playing Lisa, and am looking forward to seeing what’s in store for her this time."

The show's executive producer Jon Sen added: "Lisa is one of the most enduringly popular characters in the history of the show. We're chuffed Lucy has agreed to come back for a thrilling storyline that takes us into the heart of her past on the Square."

EastEnders continues on Monday (May 27) on BBC One.
