The past certainly keeps coming to visit Denise Fox (Diane Parish) in EastEnders. Not only has she been reunited with Raymond, the child she gave up for adoption, but her serial killer ex Lucas Johnson is returning too – with pictures revealing some very violent first scenes.
And now the soap is bringing back her daughter Chelsea – who will be played by Coronation Street and Waterloo Road star Zaraah Abrahams. She is known for playing Corrie machinist Joanne Jackson and Waterloo Road bully Michaela White and also starred in Netflix drama The Knick as well as Spike Lee’s Da Sweet Blood Of Jesus.
During her previous time in Walford, things were never quiet for Chelsea. From a brief fling with Grant Mitchell, she soon fell for Sean Slater before a brief encounter with Jack Branning, who is now currently in a relationship with her mother, Denise.
Add to that the drama of her father Lucas, it’s fair to say that drama is never far from Chelsea! Can’t wait to see Jack’s face…
Chelsea left Walford in 2010 to live with her grandmother as she couldn’t bear to be known as the daughter of a serial killer but just why is Chelsea on her way back to Walford after all these years?
Speaking about her new role Zaraah said: ‘I am so excited to be joining such an iconic show and I am really looking forward to taking on the role of Chelsea Fox.’
Jon Sen, Executive Producer added: ‘When Chelsea was around, trouble was never far away and that is as true as ever when she returns to Walford later this year.
‘We are excited that fans are going to see Chelsea back on their screens and thrilled that the wonderful Zaraah is going to play her.’
Chelsea was previously played by Tiana Benjamin.
