She’s an­other for­mer Al­bert Square res­i­dent with a few scores to set­tle!

Soaplife - - News Extra -

MEL OWEN’S EXIT from Al­bert square in 2002 was one of the more dra­matic in the soap’s his­tory… now she’s com­ing back to wal­ford in the new Year and her re­turn prom­ises to be just as ex­cit­ing!

Mel was preg­nant and on bail for charges re­lated to her late hus­band steve Owen’s drug deal­ing when she fled to Por­tu­gal, a move which cost her one-time lover, Phil Mitchell, the £30,000 he’d put up to get her out of jail on bail.

Mel left heart­bro­ken, hav­ing dis­cov­ered that steve had been sleep­ing with Phil’s sis­ter, sam, and had sold both their busi­ness and their house be­hind her back.

why Mel has de­cided to re­turn to wal­ford now has not been re­vealed, but an Easten­ders source told us that Mel is ‘still classy, sassy and fierce’ and her re­turn ‘will open old wounds’. it will also raise eye­brows… ian Beale will be stunned to see the woman he once tricked into mar­ry­ing him. As for Phil… His wily wife, sharon, will be de­ter­mined to as­sert her­self as the only blonde woman in his life.

Easten­ders bosses also haven’t said if Mel will bring her now 15-year-old child with her.

But tamzin Outh­waite has made no se­cret of her feel­ings about re­turn­ing to the soap.

‘Easten­ders is in my DNA,’ tamzin told us. ‘i al­ways knew that some­day i would re­visit Mel. she’s a strong woman with lots more sto­ries to tell.’

scary sto­ries, too, we reckon!

Mel left Wal­ford af­ter the death of her treach­er­ous hus­band, Steveé Mel’s re­turn to Al­bert Square prom­ises some ex­plo­sive drama!
