Stacey Branning makes her much anticipated return to EastEnders next week, freed on appeal for the murder of Archie Mitchell.

But her homecoming takes the locals by surprise, not least her daughter, Lily who, distressingly for Stacey, doesn’t rush into her arms. Whitney has told Lily all about her father, murderer Ryan, which leads to a massive row between Stacey and Whit.

They later resolve their problems, but her return to the Square is going to be anything but simple…

Watch the scoop on next week’s EastEnders, above.
