EastEnders viewers spotted a rather familiar face on Albert Square when a former Coronation Street actress made a surprise appearance on Monday night’s episode. 

Fans watching the BBC One soap saw Jean Slater (Gillian Wright) pay a visit to the GP amid fears she was going through the menopause, but viewers couldn’t help but recognise doctor Elinor Waters from the show’s ITV1 rival.

The medic, played by actress Esther Hall, made a guest appearance on Corrie in 2017, where she played the editor of the Weatherfield Gazette, Cindy Watson.
