EastEnders Actors Diane Parish and Tameka Empson shared a few tips of what’s ahead of this autumn as the soap returns.
On-screen Fox Sisters chatted their history, present, and future at Walford during Monday’s EastEnders: Secrets from the Square where Parish addressed her “excruciating” little-known first stint on the Square, and Empson revealed that she had been pitched playing Kim.
Looking ahead as EastEnders returns to the screens, Parish hinted that Denise ‘s relatively calm life with Jack Branning (Scott Maslen) would not last long.
“I don’t know a thing, but I do know that some dark stuff from her history is going to resurface, and there’s going to be some challenges there for Denise,” Stacey Dooley told the host.
Denise will be able to count on Kim’s help, as it has been confirmed that Tameka Empson will return to the Square after taking maternity leave for the recent arrival of her baby son.
“I know I’m coming back. She’s coming back. Look at this space. She comes back, “Empson confirmed on Secrets from Square. “How nobody knows, perhaps she’ll be back wearing tartan because she’s been a Scottish tourist guide!”
Empson just revealed her son’s birth last week, explaining on Loose Women that she needed time to “enjoy” the first year of her baby without any stress from the press or anyone else.
“Something like a child, you just want to enjoy it before everyone goes, ‘How’s it going to be?” she said. “You just want to enjoy it for a time, so it wasn’t a secret as such. Now he’s here, and he’s loud, everyone knows!”
