We were really excited when it was announced that actress Lucy Benjamin would be returning to EastEnders as Lisa Fowler, and now we're even more so.

Mel Owen actress Tamzin Outhwaite has posted a photograph alongside Benjamin, Letitia Dean (Sharon Mitchell) and Kellie Bright (Linda Carter) chilling out in the sun.

"These beautiful blonde babes, living life like beautiful, blonde bananas," she wrote (although don't read too much into it for plot details since it's clearly just a fun behind-the-scenes snap).

Lisa is returning to Albert Square because her daughter Louise is pregnant with her first child, and she's going to want to be close by.

We can't imagine a lot of people will be too happy to see her back – especially Phil and Sharon. Of course, Lisa previously tried to kidnap Louise and was famously the one who shot Phil.

"Going back to EastEnders feels like going home," Benjamin said. "I love and adore playing Lisa, and am looking forward to seeing what's in store for her this time."

EastEnders airs Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday nights on BBC One.
