Cora Cross makes a dramatic return to Albert Square

Ann Mitchell returns to EastEnders, in scenes to air next week on BBC One.

Cora Cross (Ann Mitchell) left Walford after the death of her fiancé Stan Carter last April.  We were led to believe that Cora had gone to live with her daughter Tanya (Jo Joyner). Several weeks ago, eagle eyed viewers spotted Cora leaving the community centre not looking her best, before disappearing again.

Last week, while talking to her mum on the phone, Abi (Lorna Fitzgerald) discovered that that no one had seen Cora in quite some time.

In scenes soon to next week, Jane (Laurie Brett), Carol (Lindsey Coulson) and Abi  will go looking for her and discover that she has been living on the streets.

When Abi spots her gran, she frantically follows her.
