Albert Square is set to get a bit of a shake-up in the coming weeks according to newbie to the set Ellen Thomas.

The Teachers star revealed that she is set to cause havoc on the show.

“This is one of the most formidable and complete characters I’ve ever played,” she said.

“I’m really looking forward to the delicious mayhem she’s going to bring to Albert Square.”

Thomas has already had three stints on the show as various characters over the years.

“Ellen Thomas belongs on EastEnders,” said Dominic Treadwell-Collins, Executive Producer.

“Like many actresses before her, she’s been in the show playing a different role – thank goodness Linda Henry (Shirley Carter) didn’t just play Mandy’s mum – but this is the role she was born to play.

“Albert Square now has a steely matriarch – with a few twisted secrets hidden behind her beaming smile.”
