Louise Mitchell is set to return to ‘EastEnders’, with soap newcomer Tilly Keeper playing Phil Mitchell’s daughter.
The youngster will arrive in Walford in early 2016, and as her family aren’t exactly in the best place right now, it’s not exactly a brilliant moment for the teen to return.
Louise - who is now 14 - was previously reunited with Peggy in 2010, after the Mitchell matriarch decided Phil was in no fit state to care for her.
Bosses are remaining tight-lipped on what brings Louise back to Albert Square, but this is ‘EastEnders’, so we reckon a huge surprise is probably in store.
Tilly has shared her excitement at landing the role, stating: “I am so thrilled to be joining the cast of ‘EastEnders’, especially to be joining the Mitchell clan!”
“It’s a dream come true and I can’t wait to get stuck into the role and see what lies in store for Louise,” the 18-year-old adds.
Louise’s arrival will come following a hectic festive season, and the Mitchells are set go head-to-head with the Beales on Christmas Day.
Viewers will see the families attempting to spend the 25 December together, but things reach boiling point, and with the adults at war, Bobby’s behaviour towards Dennis could almost go unnoticed.
A recently-revealed trailer previously hinted at what’s to come, teasing the huge car crash that looks set to rock Walford.
