Woah, woah, woah! We know some crazy things happen in EastEnders but this new gem of information is a bit mad even for Albert Square – Lucy Beale, the very DEAD Lucy Beale, is set to return to the soap.

Actress Hetti Bywater is to play character Lucy once again for a special one-off episode to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the BBC show.

Alright, it’s not quite what it seems. Lucy is not coming back from the actual dead. It will just be a flashback episode as part of a week of celebratory shows starting on February 16, according to The Sun.

Hetti, whose character Lucy was killed off last year, said: “It’s great to be part of the conclusion and find out what really happened the night Lucy Beale died.”

Err, yeah it will be! We’ve been waiting AGES to find out what went on!

Executive producer Dominic Treadwell-Collins added: “When we first created the Who Killed Lucy Beale storyline, we knew that we had to flashback to the night that she died on screen.

“So much happened on Good Friday 2014 after viewers saw Lucy leave her home and walk off into the night – and this flashback episode will fill in the pieces for the rest of that night, before she was killed.

“This also gives us the opportunity to have some fun with other characters, with new twists appearing in old storylines as secrets from the year before are revealed.

“With the added live element for some scenes, this is going to be an extremely special episode and the pearl within our week of celebratory episodes for EastEnders’ 30th birthday.”

Well, this is all very exciting but JUST TELL US WHO DID IT ALREADY!
