Tameka Empson is making a return to EastEnders at Christmas

Tanya never ruled out a return to EastEnders.

Tameka Empson is returning to EastEnders for a "Christmas cracker" of a storyline.

The 42-year-old actress has confirmed she will reprise her role as Kim Fox-Hubbard over the festive period, and while she is yet to discover what her plot will be, she hopes show bosses have something "big" lined up.

She said: "Kim has been working in Scotland as a tour guide. If anyone can do that, it’s Kim.

"But she’s coming back soon. And I’m hoping it will be a big storyline. With Kim Fox it’s got to be big. We can’t just have her turning up at the cafe.

"I don’t know what I’ll be doing. All I know is it will be a Christmas cracker."

Tameka loves working on the BBC One soap so much she says it is "like going on holiday".

She added to the Daily Star newspaper: "Being at EastEnders is like going on a holiday. Even though it’s work, I enjoy it.

"I’ve had fans saying they want to see Kim back on the show, which is really nice. It’s really lovely. I do miss playing her. She keeps me on my toes. She keeps me busy."

I do miss playing her. She keeps me busy.

Tameka - who has played Kim on and off since 2009 - also revealed she will be back in Walford for "a good while", but it's not known whether Kim will be joined by her husband Vincent Hubbard (Richard Blackwood).
