EastEnders (opens in new tab)' boss Dominic Treadwell-Collins has teased Kathy Beale's imminent return to Walford – and her other half, Gavin, may be following her!

Treadwell-Collins tweeted a portion of a shooting script on Wednesday afternoon, which seemed to indicate that Kathy had swindled her mysterious husband.


He's on his way... #EastEnders #KathysBack #Gavin

There has been speculation that 'Gavin' is Sharon Mitchell's real father, but all will become clear when Kathy (Gillian Taylforth) returns to EastEnders permanently.

Naughty girl, indeed.
