‘EastEnders’ actor Harry Reid, who plays Ben Mitchell, has shared his excitement ahead of Barbara Windsor’s return to Walford, though he’s admitted working with the soap legend is a daunting prospect.
Barbara made a surprise return as Peggy Mitchell earlier this year, and in the spring, she’ll return, before bowing out for the last time.
Harry has starred as Ben since 2014
It will be Harry’s first time working with the star, and he’s opened up to Radio Times about what he’s expecting the mood on set to be like.
“I've heard stories, though, that she's quite strict on set, so I'm going to do my homework."
Barbara made an emotional comeback in January
Barbara’s final scenes will air later this year, when viewers see her character die following a battle with cancer.
Ross Kemp’s character Grant Mitchell will also be back in Walford for the emotional goodbye, but there’s no word yet on whether Danniella Westbrook - or Kim Metcalfe - will be returning as Sam Mitchell.
