Speaking to Digital Spy and other media at an EastEnders press event this week, Lucy laughed: "What a very dramatic week for her to return! It's all going on in that week and drama just seems to follow Lisa around, which is fantastic. I wouldn't want it any other way, to be honest.

"But when I first got the scripts I remember speaking to [executive producer] Jon Sen and saying: 'Oh flipping heck! This is just crazy'. I'm thrilled to be part of this storyline."

Asked whether Lisa will have more tensions with the Mitchell family, Lucy replied: "Oh, I hope so – else it wouldn't be right, really. There's all of that to come, as you'd expect.

"I'm back to do a stint, but I can't give too much away about how long I'm back for. But there's more of what you would hope to come. Lisa always brings trouble and causes Phil lots of trouble."

Lisa was last seen on screen in 2017, when an emotional storyline explored her fragile mental health.

Discussing how life for Lisa has changed since then, Lucy told us: "She's well at the moment. She's on her medication, so she's turned a corner. She still has her therapy, but she's tickety-boo, in as much as she's taking the medication that she should be taking.

"We'll be seeing the calmer, more sane side of Lisa now. She's on top of her illness, she knows what she has to do in order to stay straight and together.

"That means medication probably for the rest of her life, but there is always that danger when she doesn't take it that things could go a bit wrong."
