EastEnders favourites Kat and Alfie Moon are returning to Albert Square five years after they left the show.
Screen stars Jessie Wallace and Shane Richie have reportedly signed one-year contracts to return to the soap this autumn.
"I'm excited about slipping back into Kat's stilettos. I've really missed her," says former Strictly contestant Jessie.
"More than anything, I'm looking forward to getting my face covered in Kat's lipstick again," Shane adds.
The news comes as the programme prepares to celebrate its 25th anniversary.
Old favourites Natalie Cassidy, Dean Gaffney and Lindsay Coulsen are already expected to return to the show for Ricky and Bianca's wedding.
