Two familiar faces are returning to EastEnders later this year for an explosive storyline that will change the Beale’s forever.
John Partridge and Lynda Baron are returning to EastEnders as Christian and Linda Clarke, the brother and mother of Jane Beale.
Christian appeared in the soap last year for Ian and Jane’s wedding on the 30th anniversary of the soap, which saw Lucy Beale’s killer exposed.
On his return, John Partridge said: “I am thrilled to be able to return to EastEnders whilst touring the UK with Chicago… Christian is never far from my mind – I turn my back for five minutes and look what happens!”
Jane’s mother, Linda, has not been seen on screen since February 2009 when she moved to Florida with her husband, Roger.
The pair will arrive in Albert Square this Summer.
