BBC EastEnders star Lucy Benjamin returns as Lucy Fowler
Benjamin, 52, will return to Walford alongside her character’s four-year-old granddaughter, Peggy Taylor.
Fans of the BBC soap last saw Lisa in 2019 when she helped Louise escape to Portugal.
Four years later, her return is not welcomed by everyone and may come as a shock to Peggy’s father, Keanu Taylor (Danny Walters).

In conversation with the daily mirror In the newspaper, Lucy said: “I can’t wait to return as Lisa after I’ve left Portugal with Louise and Peggy in 2019.
“Undoubtedly, in true Lisa fashion, she will bring a lot of drama to a lot of the characters, which is why she’s such a joy to play.”
While Keanu will be stunned, it’s unknown if Tilly Keeper will return to reprise her role Louise Mitchell – Peggy’s mother.
The couple thought Louise’s ex Keanu was murdered by Martin Fowler (James Bye), but he faked Keanu’s death.
EastEnders Chef Chris Clenshaw said: “We couldn’t be happier to have Lisa back for a short while as she and Peggy cause trouble between the happy couple Sharon and Keanu.”
In January 2020, Lucy, who played Lisa briefly from 1998 to 2003 and then briefly in 2010 and 2017, refused to rule out another return to Albert Square.
Speaking on ITV’s This Morning, Lucy shared: “I don’t even know if I can talk about it! I knew I would return for a station and I completed that station.”
When asked about another Albert Square run, she added: “Well, maybe. Yes, I mean, it’s so difficult… Lisa never seems to go away.”
