The suspension will not impact the 35th Anniversary special episode of the show, which is coming up on February 19th.

“She’s one of EastEnders’ biggest stars and this huge anniversary is such an exciting time for everyone working on the show.”

“There’s a real buzz around the set, as everyone is very much looking forward to celebrating the milestone,” The Mirror reports.

“Thankfully all of the episodes she appears in on the boat along the Thames have been shot, so her suspension didn’t cause any chaos to the soap’s big birthday week.”

A representative for the actress has been contacted by Goss.ie for comment.
