M'lud, she has played one of the more focused on characters in Eastenders for about 10 or 15 years now, one Shirley Carter. She plays Danny Dyer's mum.

To be honest, I preferred her in Beautiful Thing...goes off to hum some Mama Cass....

Simplifying it a bit aren't you.

 

He plays Danny Dyer's mum who he thought until a few years ago was his big sister! As Shirley's father and mother (Stan and Sylvie) covered up her pregnancy and raised Mick as their own son rather than Shirley and a squirt absent father called Andy!

Ah, see, I fast forward all the bits that aren't June Brown/Leonard Fenton form spotting, so missed that.

Gillian Taylforth (Kathy in Eastenders) might be on a medical break  - been on a suspicious break on screen since early November. Kathy said she was going on Holiday in a short scene  but has not been seen and I don't think been mentioned since. Clearly not supposed to have been on the square unseen over christmas and no reports of her having upcoming scenes.

Face might help? Her other roles are mainly 1 or 2 episodes jobbies, so if you don't know her from EE or Bad Girls you probably won't know her.

On which note this evening the gentleman''s agreement not to clash between EastEnders and Coronation Street has been thrown out the window for a rare occasion tonight with them both airing at 8pm. Will be interesting to see the ratings tomorrrow/later in the week. 

 

 

I know this has nothing to do with deadpooling.

Radio times credits are not an accurate guide to who is appearing - just who is still part of 'the cast'. Sharon is off for a few more weeks but Letitia Dean credited on Page 232.

Shirley fecking not. They need to Carter away in a bodybag ffs. No wonder I stopped watching the show religiously when I Cotton'ed on they were taking the Mick. Denise to do something about that state of it. They Owen the viewers more than this. Needs re-Branning.

Worked on Take the High Road and Emmerdale for extended stints. As well as reasonable long stints by soap standards on Brookside and Coronation Street and a little jaunt at EastEnders, that's some resume.
