She then turns up in Albert Square and begs her ex Phil Mitchell, to help her get her son Dennis back, who has been taken by her scorned and furious boyfriend, played by Jesse Birdsall.

On returning to the wedding venue, there's an angry confrontation between the three characters.

Sharon's return to the show, her first since 2006, will be hailed with seven episodes being broadcast across a week.

She was last seen leaving the Square following the death of husband Dennis Rickman, played by Nigel Harman, the father of Dennis Jr.

The dramatic week starts on August 13. [The Sun]
