Lisa Faulkner made a return to acting in Thursday’s EastEnders and viewers welcomed her back on screen.
The former Holby City and Spooks star arrived in Albert Square as businesswoman Fi Browning whose job is to whip the Queen Vic team into shape.
She may only have had a few scenes so far, but her casting is already a popular one.

It's good to see @LisaFaulkner1 acting again;). You can definitely be a multi tasker! I wonder if Fi can cook as good as you LOL? x

Someone else couldn’t resist a joke about Lisa’s gruesome Spooks exit which saw her head forced into boiling oil.
