EastEnders legend Barbara Windsor is back in familiar territory in these newly-released photos as she reprises her role as Peggy Mitchell for the show's 30th anniversary.

Peggy will return to her former home of The Queen Vic, where she'll come face-to-face with the new landlord Mick Carter (played by Danny Dyer)! The episode will air on Tuesday 17 February.

Speaking about working with Barbara, Danny said: "It was a real moment when I got told because for me, I think EastEnders had some of its best moments when Barbara was at the helm. So It was a shame that when I came in, Barbara was no longer in the show."

Danny, who has previously revealed his nerves ahead of the live shows, added: "I've known Barbara for a little while but not well. But she was lovely. She wound me up and said, 'Oi you, I want a word with you!'

"I was like, 'Oh no here we go' and then she wound me up and gave me a big cuddle. She gave me the thumbs up which is a massive thing!"

It's set to be an "explosive week of drama, special shows and a flashback episode" with shocking revelations and twists as Lucy Beale's killer will finally be revealed.
