EastEnders casts TV LEGEND in mystery new role
EastEnders has reportedly cast a famous TV star in an undisclosed role whose set to stir up trouble in Walford.
EastEnders has reportedly cast 'Allo 'Allo! and former Emmerdale star Vicki Michelle in a mystery role that's set to cause drama in the Square.
The TV legend is best known for playing waitress Yvette Carte-Blanche in the BBC comedy series 'Allo 'Allo! and as Patricia Foster in Emmerdale.
Vicki is allegedly set to appear in EastEnders for a short stint this spring and is due to start filming her soap role later this month.
A source apparently told The Sun (opens in new tab): “Bosses are keeping tight-lipped on her role, but she will definitely stir up some drama.
“Producers know she’s a talented actress and will go down a storm with fans.”
Vicki also appeared in I'm a Celebrity in 2014, finishing in seventh place and has starred in many TV and films during her successful career, including Virgin Witch, Silent Hours, The Likely Lads, Sexy Beast and Run for Your Wife, which featured former EastEnders legend Danny Dyer.
With her role currently undisclosed, fans are already speculating who she will be playing and how she will be involved in the drama of Albert Square.
Taking to Twitter, one viewer thought that she could have something to do with Lola Pearce-Brown's (Danielle Harold) terminal cancer storyline. Currently, Lola is clueless to the fact that 'Nicole' is in fact her long-lost mum Emma Harding (Patsy Kensit).

The same user also commented that Vicki could be a recast of Michelle Fowler (formerly played by Jenna Russell between 2016-2018) as they heard that her son, Mark Fowler Jr (Ned Porteous) could be returning following his exit in 2016.

Another theory was posted that Vicki could be playing Rocky Cotton's (Brian Conley) wife — after he unintentionally proposed to his true love Kathy Beale (Gillian Taylforth) and later dropped the bombshell to his friend Mitch Baker (Roger Griffiths) that he was already married and hadn't seen his wife in 25 years.
