EastEnders: Shirley Carter’s daughter Carly is headed back to Walford!
Yesterday, Digital Spy reported that the character of Carly Wicks, who is of course Shirley Carter’s daughter, is headed back to Walford, and her return is tied in with the storyline in which Ben Mitchell (Joshua Pascoe) will be revealed as Heather Trott’s killer.
As we’ll see in the episode that airs on August 17th, Shirley (Linda Henry) will finally put together all the clues about Heather’s murder, and subsequently, she’ll find out that her fiancé Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden) and Jay (Jamie Borthwick) helped Ben cover up his crime.
The revelation is of course set to send shockwaves through the Square, and it’s during this time that Carly – who’s played by Kellie Shirley – will return to Walford…
Of reprising the role of feisty Carly, who’s now a mum, Kellie said, “Having left EastEnders in 2008, it’s flattering to be asked to return as Carly for this particular storyline.
“Carly is coming back slightly older, wiser and independent, although she still needs and loves her mum.
“The Shirley/Carly dynamic is fun to play and is as volatile as ever.
Are you hoping that Carly reconciles with her mum when she comes back?
