Libby Fox actress Belinda Owusu returns to EastEnders for 2 episodes


Belinda Owusu – who plays Libby Fox – is to return to EastEnders this Summer to celebrate her birthday with her friends and family.

Libby, who’s birthday took place on July 27th in previous years, was last seen on Albert Square last Spring, when she attended the funeral of Lucy Beale.

Speaking about her return, an excited Belinda told the BBC: “It’s great to be back again! I’m always excited to see how Libby has grown and be back with the Fox family!”

Libby was first seen in Albert Square in 2006, when her family moved to the Square. The character was involved in a dramatic storyline which saw her own father, Owen Turner, kidnap her and attempt to kill her.

After four years in Walford, Libby left to study at Oxford University in 2010.

Libby may be returning to celebrate her birthday, but is there more to her visit than she’s letting on?

    I think it is nice that DTC brings old characters back to visit family. I know I have friends and family that I don’t see that often, so to me-it makes sense to have characters return even if only for a couple of episodes.

    wish Libby would come back permanently-she was a good character – well-played by Belinda.
