EASTENDERS’ Michelle Collins enjoyed a dog show this weekend with her toyboy husband after her shock return to the soap.
The actress, whose character Cindy Beale left Albert Square 25 years ago, embraced a bohemian vibe on her wholesome day out.
Michelle Collins who plays Cindy Beale on Eastenders was joined by her husband Mike Davidson
She wore a beautiful white maxi dress with circular tie-dye patterns printed across it.
Michelle, 61, kept it casual with a pair of flip-flops and a black bandeau bra underneath.
Keeping herself protected from the unsettled weather this weekend, she covered her shoulders with a black blazer jacket.
To add to her hippie chic look she carried a tasseled bag and straw hat.
Meanwhile, Mike Davidson, 38, wore a white t-shirt with a v-neck and a pair of slim-fit jeans.
The pair, who have a 23 year age gap, got married in August last year after a 10-year romance.
Michelle is a patron for the All Dogs Matter charity and adopted her two pups Peggy and Humphrey through them.
EastEnders fans were in shock after it was revealed that Cindy Beale was coming back from the dead.
Michelle’s character “died” off-screen in 1996 during childbirth while in jail for attempted murder.
She will arrive back in Albert Square later this summer having rekindled her relationship with Ian, despite hiring a hitman to have him killed back in 1998 – much to mother-in-law Kathy’s horror.
Their son Peter, played by Thomas Law, will also return alongside his reunited parents.
And the soap’s top boss Chris Clenshaw said that the moment she comes face to face with Kathy, played by Gillian Taylforth, 67, is “absolute dynamite.”
Chris said: “Cindy’s a little softer through everything that has gone on, after 25 years of living a different identity and living a lie to her other family – and what comes quite apparent later in the year when she returns to Walford is it doesn’t take long before we see flashes of the old Cindy Beale.
