Emmerdale's Bernice Blackstock is returning to the ITV soap it has been confirmed.
The character will be "back with a bang" as she arrives in the village this summer, after her abrupt exit in 2019.
Samantha Giles is reprising the role, after taking some time away from the show to focus on her writing.
After being offered the chance to make a comeback, the star who plays Gabby Thomas' mother agreed and she will be heading back very soon it seems.
Bernice left with her daughter Dee Dee in November 2019 after her ex Charlie was left injured in a car accident in Australia.
She split with partner Liam as a result after he realised she wasn't coming back, and moved on with her pal Leyla Harding.
The new couple are now on track after a bumpy ride recently, and a wedding looks set to be on the horizon.
But how will they react to Bernice returning, and what will she make of the new romance?
Bernice's daughter Gabby recently learned she was pregnant with Jamie Tate's baby - and is now living with Kim Tate.
Gabby's mum will no doubt have something to say about this, but is it too little too late after Gabby felt neglected after her mum left her in the village?
Speaking about what's ahead, actress Samantha said: "As an actress leaving a role that you love is always a hard decision and I’d been lucky to work so consistently for so long which is rare in our business, so I knew the time had come to be brave and take the leap back in 2019 to pursue my other passion of writing and focus on getting my first book published.
"I’ve now had such a lovely response with Rosemary and The Witches of Pendle Hill and the down time of the pandemic meant I was able to complete my next two books.
"I’m a big believer in fate so when Emmerdale offered me the chance to return as Bernice I took it as a sign that it was meant to be.
"I’m delighted to be returning to play out Bernice’s future storylines which I’m sure are going to keep the audience entertained.
"She certainly arrives back with a bang that’s all I’m allowed to say right now and I’m looking forward to releasing my next two books whilst juggling her hectic onscreen life!"
Emmerdale Producer Laura Shaw added: "I am thrilled to have Samantha Giles returning to Emmerdale as Bernice.
"Samantha is such a fabulous actress and her portrayal of Bernice is a wonderfully warm, complex mix of tragedy and comedy that always brings a whirlwind of fun and drama.
"Constantly misunderstood, often getting things terribly wrong, Bernice promises to cause quite a stir from the moment she lands back in the village and will certainly turn lives upside down as she tries to navigate through the changes since she left."
Emmerdale airs weeknights at 7pm on ITV, with an extra episode at 8pm on Thursdays.
