Albert Square is about to be rocked by the return of another black sheep – Stacey Branning!

But when the onetime hellcat turns up at Kat And Alfie’s – years after she slipped away having confessed to Archie Mitchell’s murder – it’s only to rip into them for causing upheaval in her new life. She says her piece and then disappears, but is found in a distressed state by Mick Carter, who comforts her before she vanishes again.
