Doty will return to Walford

EastEnders star Milly Zero has insisted she will return to the soap as Dotty Cotton – after Ian Beale was attacked.

The actress made an abrupt exit from the soap on November 24 when Dotty announced she was going to stay with her grandmother.

Will Milly Zero return to EastEnders?

However, actress Milly was asked by a fan if she would be returning and she confirmed she is.

She tweeted: “Yes she will be!! I haven’t left the show.”

It comes after Dotty’s mortal enemy Ian Beale was left for dead after a horror attack.

The soap didn’t include Dotty on the official suspect list – but that’s nothing new.

When the Who Killed Lucy? storyline was running they didn’t include her real killer Bobby on the list either.

So could Dotty have been the one to attack Ian?

She could have been hiding around Walford waiting for her opportunity to strike and take revenge on him.

The soap confirmed the eight suspects last night.

Tina Carter was covered in blood after a clash with Ian.

Rainie Highway could be seen rushing through Walford on a mission. Ian had ruined her chances of being a mother again.

Her husband Stuart could be seen burning something at the allotments.

Ian’s brother Ben could be seen leaving the pub where Ian had been attacked.

Peter Beale, still furious at his dad, could be seen nursing his own wounds looking bloodied and bruised.

His brother Bobby looked to be suffering from a mental health episode in an alleyway after Peter tried to convince him to kill Ian.

However, Max Branning could be seen looking like he had taken revenge on Ian for his blackmail attempts.

And Suki Panesar rounded out the suspects but looked a lot less suspicious than the rest.

She sat at a bar in front of the CCTV – looking like she was setting up her own alibi for Ian’s attack.
