Emma Barton has returned to 'EastEnders'.
The actress made a surprise return to the BBC One soap in last night's (27.05.14) episode as Billy Mitchell's estranged wife, Honey Mitchell, who was last screen on screens in 2008.
Honey was seen back in Albert Square with her and Billy's two children, Janet and William.
Following the episode, executive producer Dominic Treadwell-Collins teased on Twitter: "We will keep the surprises coming... #EastEnders (sic)"
Emma also tweeted about her comeback, writing: "Thank you so much for all of the lovely messages.. Haven't seen ep yet.. But very excited to be back on Britain's Best Sq! (sic)"
The actress first appeared in Walford from 2005 to 2008 and was at the centre of an emotional storyline when Billy (Perry Fenwick) and Honey's daughter Janet was born with Down's syndrome.
Honey's return follows Jane Beale's surprise reappearance in Albert Square in January, as well as brief stints from past characters Libby Fox (Belinda Owusu) and Christian Clarke (John Partridge).
Elsewhere in last night's episode, viewers were dealt another shock as soap favourite David Wicks (Michael French) suffered a heart attack just before his wedding to Carol Jackson (Lindsey Coulson).
