EastEnders bosses have released pictures previewing Sonia Fowler’s (Natalie Cassidy) return to the soap.
In scenes to be aired next week, Carol (Lindsey Coulson) pays her daughter an unexpected visit as she comes to terms with the news she has breast cancer.
Sonia is intrigued about the reason behind her mum’s visit until Carol opens up about her diagnosis. Carol insists she is coping but soon finds herself overcome with emotion and her family do their best to comfort her.
Natalie Cassidy’s return to EastEnders was announced in October; the actress originally portrayed the role of Sonia between 1993 and 2007 before returning for two guest stints in 2010 and 2011.
Catch this episode of EastEnders on Wednesday 15th January at 8.00pm on BBC One.
