‘EastEnders’ Spoilers: Peggy Mitchell's Death Will Break Your Heart, Promises Soap Boss

It's going to be an emotional one.

‘EastEnders’ executive producer Dominic Treadwell-Collins has made a bold promise ahead of Peggy Mitchell’s return to Albert Square, teasing that the upcoming exits will be among the soap's most emotional ever.

Tonight (Monday 9 May), viewers will see Barbara Windsor’s character return to Walford, and later this week, emotions will run high when she decides to stop having treatment for cancer.
