GOODBYE: EASTENDERS’ Bonnie Langford (Carmel
Kazemi) As La Langford treads the West End boards again in a new production of that timless musical classic 42nd Street, a grieving Carmel bids farewell to Walford and the memories of son Shakil being fatally knifed. They were highly emotive scenes, strong ones to bow out on.

(Kerry Johnson) Kerry steps off the Jabot elevator at the end of October to begin her new job that will involve being “willing to cross a few lines.” Don’t be fooled by her familiar moniker.
