Bonnie Langford is set to return to Doctor Who, according to reports from The Mirror.

Bonnie Langford, also known for roles on EastEnders and starring on Dancing On Ice, played the Sixth and Seventh Doctor's companion Mel Bush from 1986-87.

The Mirror reports that she's being "lined-up" for a cameo appearance in the 2024 series alongside Ncuti Gatwa's new incarnation of The Doctor. TV Zone approached the BBC for comment.

Speculation has grown in recent months that Langford may be involved in the show's 60th Anniversary specials, set to air in 2023, after stars David Tennant and Catherine Tate were overheard talking about a 'Mel' during filming.

After the upcoming BBC Centenary special, The Power Of The Doctor, Russell T. Davies returns as the showrunner of the long-running BBC science-fiction series. 'RTD2' will begin with a series of specials starring returning actors David Tennant and Catherine Tate for the show's 60th Anniversary.

Sex Education star Ncuti Gatwa will then take over as The Doctor in 2024, with filming on the new series due to commence in the coming months.
