It's just too weird

EastEnders' Pat Butcher was famous for many things. Those chandelier-earring. That leopard print faux-fur jacket. Her rocky-relationships. And basically, being a straight-talking matriarch who you didn't mess with. But now... SHE. IS.BACK!

But no, before you say it, she hasn't been dug up from the graveyard in Albert Square after she sadly died of cancer. She's selling windows instead.

Yep, that's right. Pam St Clement has revived her well-loved character for glazing company Safeglaze UK's most recent advert. Check it out...

As well as playing the window sales women, Pam (dressed as Pat in THAT leopard jacket) can be seen heckling her other character before dancing around with excitement for the BOGOF offer.

Yes, we know. It's so bizarre!

Pat first appeared in the BBC soap in 1986 and died in 2012 after being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. In May 2016, Pam reappeared as Pat, again playing opposite Barbara Windsor, for a few minutes as an imagined figure in conversation with the terminally ill Peggy Mitchell. Peggy then died.

Following her exit from the soap Pam has kept a relatively low-profile, although she was recently on ITV's Gone to Pot. Her autobiography, The End of an Earring, was released in 2015.

But, just like us social media was baffled...
