Letitia Dean's comeback to 'EastEnders' as Sharon Rickman will be marked with seven episodes in one week
Letitia Dean's return to 'EastEnders' will be marked with seven special episodes.
The actress - who is returning to the role of Sharon Rickman in the BBC soap - arrives on screens mid-August and her character will be seen begging Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden) for help after her son Dennis is kidnapped.
Seven episodes will air in one week to celebrate her return, which comes after six years away.
Sharon was last seen in Albert Square in 2006 when she was pregnant with her son.
A source said recently: "Sharon's back and is in serious trouble.
"She knows that when things are this bad there is only one person she can turn to and Phil's happy to help."
It will be Letitia's third return to the show; she left in 1996 following an affair with Phil behind her husband and his brother Grant Mitchell's back, before returning as landlady of the Queen Vic in 2001.
She left again in 2006 following the death of husband Dennis Rickman - the son of her adopted father Den Watts.
Following her last departure she took part in 'Strictly Come Dancing', where she was voted out in the quarter final.
