The BBC have announced that Maddy Hill is set to reprise her role as Nancy Carter in EastEnders after five years away from the soap.
Nancy left the Square to go travelling with boyfriend Tamwar Masood in 2016, with the two settling down in New Zealand.
Maddy said: "I’m so excited to be coming back and reconnecting with all the hilarious, warm, talented cast and crew and meeting some lovely new faces. I absolutely loved playing Nancy and have often wondered what she's up to, so feel very grateful to be able to rediscover her five years on."
Jon Sen, Executive Producer, EastEnders says: “We’re delighted to have Maddy back and I can’t wait for audiences to see what’s in store for Nancy. There’s a lot of mystery surrounding her return and she’s coming back to a family that have been through a very difficult year – things are definitely not as Nancy left them. Maddy is a fantastic actor and we feel very lucky to have her back in Walford.”
EastEnders airs four times a week on BBC One.
