AFTER a spate of old characters resurfacing in Walford fans are convinced they have spotted a hint that yet another old favourite will come back on screens soon.
EastEnders viewers were gobsmacked to hear that villain Dean Wicks was going to make a return to the soap for a new storyline on Halloween.
Actress Jacqueline Jossa has also made an explosive return to Walford as Lauren Branning after five years away from the show.
Now viewers fans think that Shabnam Masood is going to be next.
The modern Muslim woman left the borough after she got pregnant following a one night stand with Dean.
She gave birth to baby Jade, who she originally called Roya, but taking care of the baby proved to be too much for her and she gave her up.

Shabnam decided to get her daughter out of there and left Walford for good with Jade.
But now the show villain is back in town, viewers are convinced his daughter and ex will arrive back on the scene as well.
After Dean mentioned Jade being unwell in one episode, one person shared their hopes for Shabnam's return, saying: "With Jade being the reason Dean is back, I hope her and Shabnam appear. I’d love it if they became regulars but even for a short stint would be great."
