Jo Joyner returns to EastEnders

Ex-EastEnders star Jo Joyner has confirmed on Twitter she is returning to the role of Tanya Branning for the soap's 30th anniversary next month!

Tanya left Albert Square in Summer 2013, and Jo has since appeared in other telly stuff including the Sky Living comedy, Trying Again. 

"I'm thrilled to be a part of the 30 year celebrations of a show that I am proud to have been a part of," says Jo who is returning for two episodes. "I'm really looking forward to working with everyone again, no matter how briefly. But I hope I didn't kill Lucy!"

Dominic Treadwell-Collins, executive producer of EastEnders says: "Tanya and Max's rows were legendary and it's going to be thrilling to watch them go head-to-head again - but this time, live!"
