‘EastEnders' Spoiler: First Look! June Whitfield's Soap Scenes Revealed (PICS)

The veteran actress is set to star as a nun, who offers Kat Slater a few words of advice - and something a little stronger - to combat her recent troubles.

Sister Ruth offers Kat and a helping hand (and a hipflask...)

June’s character, a nun named Sister Ruth will appear in just one episode, when she offers counsel to Kat.

The mother-of-three also attempted suicide, and her family have struggled to provide the support she needs - which is where June comes in.

What's next for Kat?

June isn’t the only high profile star to take a wander through Albert Square in recent weeks, and Denise van Outen is currently enjoying a few weeks in Walford.

E20 will also be welcoming a permanent new arrival when Pam and Les’s grandson Paul Coker arrives later this year.

Watch ‘EastEnders’ on 1 May to see June’s scenes.
