EastEnders legend Peggy Mitchell returned to the BBC One soap in tonight’s episode as Barbara Windsor returned to her iconic role.

As a drunken Phil went on search for his daughter, Louise, he smashed his way into Aunt Sal’s house and demanded Louise’s address.

Speaking last year about a possible return to the soap, Windsor said she would love to return to the show alongside her sons the Mitchell brothers, Phil and Grant.

She said: “It would obviously be a great storyline to have Peggy reunited with her boys. Never say never. It could happen.”

Peggy was last seen in Walford almost a year ago, when she returned to speak to Dot about Nick Cotton.

Peggy dropped a huge bombshell on Phil when she revealed her cancer had returned, and that she was dying.
