Windsor - Back for a "very special episode" in the autumn

EastEnders legend Barbara Windsor is to return to the BBC soap for a one-off appearance in the autumn.

BBC News reports that the "very special episode" will involve her character, Peggy, coming to the aid of son Phil (Steve McFadden).

In a statement, Windsor said: "It may only be a short visit, but it's a family matter and as Peggy always said 'it's all about family'.

"It is no secret how much I have always loved EastEnders and Peggy Mitchell - and by the number of times I'm constantly stopped by the great British public and asked either 'when are you coming back' or 'please say get out of my pub', it seems they have too."

The soap's executive producer, Lorraine Newman, said: "Peggy's surprise visit is a wonderful treat for our fans, as well as the cast and crew here on EastEnders. It's great to welcome her home."
