Hannah Spearritt set for EastEnders return after impressing soap bosses

Hannah Spearritt is set to reprise her role as Kandice Taylor after impressing EastEnders bosses.

The former S Club 7 star, who starred in two episodes last year, proved popular with viewers during her short stint.

Feisty Kandice first appeared when sister Karen begged her for money, before driving into Albert Square in her posh motor and the cash.

Speaking to the Mirror Online in December, Hannah said she was "popping in for a short stint" but was open for a long-term stay.

EastEnders bosses were reportedly impressed with her performances and could offer a permanent role if she continues to prove popular with fans.

A telly source told The Sun : “Bosses were really impressed with Hannah’s talent and energy.

“She went down well with fans and created a great buzz around the show. She has a positive, hard-working attitude, which was infectious.

“If she continues to prove popular, she could be a more permanent fixture. Plus her chemistry with the other actors works really well.”

Hannah promised "explosive drama" and she wasn’t lying, as the Taylor sisters had a heated argument in the street which ended up with money being thrown everywhere.

Speaking about her appearance in Walford last year, Hannah said: "It feels great. For me it was something that I watched when I was a kid, it was lawyers on the telly.

"It was something that I watched and thought I want to do that and be an actress.

"So it’s awesome to have EastEnders on my CV and to be in the Square and all that stuff. It’s so surreal to be in the Square."

*EastEnders continues on Thursday on BBC One at 7.30pm
