SOAP fans have been eager to know when Sam Mitchell will be coming back to the Square.
The bombshell finally comes back next week in EastEnders after several months of absence – but she's bringing heaps of trouble.
Kim Medcalf reprises her role in the BBC One soap next week after her on-screen alter ego Sam Mitchell left Walford earlier this year for a job opportunity abroad.
During her absence, life in Albert Square took a turn for her son Ricky Branning (portrayed by Frankie Day) as he became a father to a girl named Charli in September, 2023.
Lily Slater gave birth to the tot in her lounge with the help of her grandmother Jean and mother Stacey.
But there is more to Sam's return as she crashes back into Walford next week with a request for her brother Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden).

Sam begs the tough man to help her as she's managed to get in a drug boss' bad books by owing him a whopping amount of money.
Phil is keen to help but his wife Kat Slater (Jessie Wallace) is furious that he's even considering it.
In later scenes, Sam wakes up at Billy Mitchell's place and is full of self-pity when she realises she still hasn't seen her son Ricky or baby Charli.
When her efforts to get Phil to reconsider fail, Sam runs into drug boss Camillo, who grabs her harshly by the arm.
