EastEnders fans were told a major character would be returning to the Square before Christmas and it seems it is none other than Lucas Johnson (played by Don Gilet). The BBC soap announced the former villain would be making a comeback later this year, but whose storyline will he be involved in? Denise Fox (Diane Parish) is still living in Walford, and her life is about to be turned upside down by Ellie Nixon (Mica Paris) and her son, Raymond’s illness. Could Lucas have something to do with these two newcomers?
EastEnders’ official Twitter account wrote: “Don Gilet is returning to Walford as one of E20’s most notorious bad guys, Lucas Johnson, later in the year.
“Four years after he left The Square his comeback is set to cause shockwaves amongst the residents.
“Has his time inside done him any good? #EastEnders #BigReturn.”
Speaking about his character’s return, Don said: “I’m thrilled and honoured to be asked to breathe life once again into such a complex, controversial and divisive character.
