But despite everyone being excited about catching up with all their Walford favourites, there is just one question on everyone's lips. Where are Mick and Linda living now?!

While tonight's comeback episode saw Mick and Linda looking more loved up than ever, they weren't the only ones.

Also in Albert Square...

Lockdown has seen Martin and Ruby also officially become a couple, not that Kat, who has recently returned to the Square, is happy to see them together.

There was also drama in Walford when Dotty revealed Ian's dark secret about the night Denny died to Sharon, while Callum has found himself in a tricky situation after seeing Ben on some CCTV footage at work.

Chantelle has also had a tough time during lockdown, and is now looking to get a divorce from controlling husband, Gray.

Fans will know that her story isn't going to end well, with Gray tragically killing her as she tries to end their toxic marriage.

With all this drama going on in Walford and it's only the first episode back, one thing is for sure... EastEnders is back with a bang!
