Eastenders to screen Frank Butcher special

Frank Butcher is to return in a one-off EastEnders special.

Fans will find out what he's been up to since faking his death in Spain.

The hour-long episode, called Perfectly Frank, airs on BBC1 on September 21.

It will show that Frank, played by Mike Reid, has settled in the seaside town of Morley Bay where he has opened a car-lot called Fair Deal Frank's.

His latest venture is a nightclub - Frank's Empire Club - which runs into trouble on its opening night.
