Actress Emma Barton, who will be among the contestants vying for the Glitterball on Strictly Come Dancing this year, made her name in EastEnders.
The Portsmouth-born actress, 42, first appeared as Honey Mitchell on the BBC soap in 2005.
She left in 2008 and, after briefly reprising the role in 2014, became an Albert Square regular again in 2015.
Barton, who graduated from Guildford School of Acting, has also appeared in television roles including Spooks, Doctors and Who Needs Enemies.
The actress, who was once married to a lawyer, has also appeared in pantomimes and performed in the UK tour of One Man, Two Guvnors.
She also starred as Roxie Hart in the West End production of Chicago.
Earlier this year Barton joined other EastEnders stars in running the London Marathon to raise money for a dementia charity.
EastEnders legend Dame Barbara Windsor was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease in 2014.
