EastEnders characters urgently need to hide their hockey sticks because the infamous Bobby Beale is set to return to Albert Square in next week’s episodes.
Although, it’s not Bobby as we remember him.
The notorious villain, played by newcomer Clay Milner Russell, has been locked up for a number of years following the savage murder of his sister Lucy (Hetti Bywater), but now he’s served time for his crime he’s back home no doubt with more heinous acts up his sleeve.
Bobby’s dramatic Walford comeback is due to air on Friday 14 June after the grand opening of The Prince Albert, with frantic grandma Kathy (Gillian Taylforth) sneaking out of the event to see him.
The BBC soap confirmed Bobby would be revived last month, with a spokesperson revealing that he’d soon be released from the detention centre.
Bobby Beale has been played by a total of four actors so far, with Clay joining as the fifth.
Eliot Carrington’s portrayal of Ian Beale’s youngest son is arguably the most memorable though, having almost bludgeoned step-mum Jane (Laurie Brett) to death with a hockey stick and being uncovered as his sister Lucy’s killer in the mammoth storyline Who Killed Lucy Beale? which had audiences gripped for an entire year.
The last time audiences saw Bobby was during the heist fiasco when Max Branning (Jake Wood) was using him to blackmail Jane into silence over his role in cahoots with James Willmott-Brown and the death of Steven Beale.
Could Bobby be seeking out some just deserts? We certainly wouldn’t put it past him.
A number of EastEnders icons are returning to Walford, with Patsy Palmer’s Bianca Butcher set to be revived in the autumn.
Meanwhile, Lisa Fowler (Lucy Benjamin) will also be welcomed back to Albert Square later this year – aren’t we lucky!
