Wallace comeback to spark 'incredible' EastEnders episodes

Shane Richie has revealed that there will be some "incredible" storylines on 'EastEnders' when Jessie Wallace returns.

The actor - who plays Alfie in the BBC soap - has been without his wife Kat, played by Jessie, since earlier this year, when she was written out of the soap to go and care for her sick father, Charlie.

However, she is now back and Shane is excited about what is in store for her.

He told InsideSoap magazine: "Jessie's back at work now after having a little break. I had a meeting about future storylines, and can only say that all the stuff which happened last year is nothing compared to what's going to take place over the next 12 months. It's set to be incredible!"

Since taking time off from 'EastEnders' Roxy has started to have romantic feelings for Alfie and it's all set to come to a head when feisty Kat returns to the screen.

Viewers will be able to see Jessie again in the next couple of months.

Her return comes at a testing time for the soap, with a number of big names taking some time off including Patsy Palmer and June Brown.
