‘EastEnders’ viewers will see Phil Mitchell finally seeking help for his alcohol problem in tonight’s (Thursday 17 March) episode, when he attends an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting with Ronnie by his side.

However, when he arrives he gets a blast from the last, in the form his ex Lorna Cartwright.

Lorna was last seen in Walford in 1998

Actress Janet Dibley has reprised her role, and while it’s not clear how long she’s back in Walford for, her appearance is sure to have an effect on Phil, who isn’t exactly thriving at the moment.

Will Lorna’s appearance derail him again?
