'EastEnders' Spoiler: Honey Mitchell To Return To Walford, As Emma Barton Reprise Role As Billy Mitchell's Ex-Wife

EastEnders’ Billy Mitchell will have a shock later this year, when his ex-wife Honey returns to Walford.


Soap bosses have confirmed that Emma Barton will be reprising her role as the ditzy Mitchell.

Emma Barton is returning as Honey Mitchell

Honey left the Square with their children, William and Janet, back in 2008 after her marriage with Billy (Perry Fenwick) fell apart.

Viewers briefly saw her return back in 2014 when she revealed her plans to move to Canada.

After an explosive visit, Honey left for a new life in Canada with a job offer for little William leaving Janet with her father.

On her return, Emma Barton said: “I was absolutely delighted to be asked to return to the Square! Cliché as it sounds, but it's like coming home.

“I've had a wonderful time treading the boards but can't wait to put Honey's shoes back on and find out what's she's been up to and what the future has in store.”

Viewers will see Honey Mitchell return to ‘EastEnders’ later this year.
