Annette Badlands who played Aunt Babe in Eastenders will be back in the world of TV drama this year.
We all remember the evil Aunt Babe from Eastenders played by actress Annette Badland.
Her dramatic departure from the show happened when the Carter family found out that she had abandoned Sylvie close to death by the canal and forced her to leave the Queen Vic.
Many viewers were glad to see the back of her, but it might be hard for them to get used to the fact that Annette will be back on our TV's soon as a good guy!
The actress is joining the cast of ITV's Midsomer Murders as pathologist Dr Fleur Perkins and will be helping DCI John Barnaby (played by Neil Dudgeon) and DS Jamie Winter (played by Nick Hendrix) solve some grim murders.
She said of her new role "‘I have always enjoyed living dangerously so arriving at Midsomer is thrilling!
In truth I’m delighted to be involved in the twentieth series of Midsomer Murders and to work alongside and be part of this creative team. I hope Fleur can assist Barnaby in maintaining his high success rate of crime detection. She is very good at her job."
But Annette revealed to Metro.co.uk that Aunt Babe might still be back on Albert Square yet.
She teased "The door is open, she is vengeful, she curses them, says she'll be back - and I think she will"
