Lawrence's character Diane has not been seen on Albert Square since 2008. She made a cameo for the funeral of Frank Butcher (Mike Reid).

Meanwhile, Owen took an extended break from the programme last year, filming his final scenes in the winter.

Owen's on-screen wife Patsy Palmer, who plays Bianca, announced that she is taking a hiatus from EastEnders last month.

Janine and Michael, who are having a child, are expected to marry in the summer. Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
