It wasn’t just Grant Mitchell who made a comeback in EastEnders – fans were even more surprised to see someone else tonight.Courtney Mitchell hasn’t been in the show since 2006 and is now being played by Alice Nokes. The actress made her debut in a scene with Sharon (Letitia Dean), who texted Courtney’s dad Grant expecting him to show up.
Shazza, instead, was confronted by his daughter, whose late mum Tiffany died in a tragic car accident.
TV viewers were bowled over by Courtney’s arrival with many unable to get over how similar she looked to Martine McCutcheon, who played Tiffany.
