Fans Confused As Barbara Windsor Admits She Is Planning Her Return To EastEnders

The dust hasn’t even settled yet on Dame Barbara Windsor’s emotional EastEnders farewell and she already wants to come back – even though Peggy is dead…peggguMany viewers are still traumatised from seeing the Queen Vic’s feistiest-ever landlady Peggy Mitchell die tragically in May – and then be laid to rest in July. But if you’d assumed that this massive send-off was really the end of Peggy Mitchell in Albert Square – think again!

“I would love Peggy to come back on as a ghost – I’d definitely be up for it. I’d love that as I’d have been able to have had a rest for a little bit,” she told The Sun at the TV Choice Awards.

“I’m going to have to talk to the producers so they can find a way of doing that. I’m still in touch with them all so it would be easy. When I went back for my last scenes I said, ‘I’ll get Grant back for you’, and of course he came back, didn’t he?” The idea isn’t too far-fetched since EastEnders actually brought back Peggy’s pal Pat Butcher (Pam St Clement) as a ghost for the Mitchell matriarch’s finale scenes.

Aside from the shock of seeing Peggy back on screen again, Dame Barbara is keen to mentor EastEnders’ young cast: “I want to go back to help those young actors – sometimes they need someone to really show them what to do,” she said. “In my day we were taught about respect and how to behave.”
