EastEnders spoilers – Fans spot HUGE hint top character’s secret sister is back; plus Coronation Street & Emmerdale news


EASTENDERS has dropped a hint that Rainie Cross’ secret sister Ava Hartman will make a shock return to Albert Square.

Ava – played by Clare Perkins – is the eldest daughter of Cora Cross, and was last seen by fans of the soap back in 2012 alongside sister Tanya Branning.

Mother-of-one Ava was on a mission to figure out who her birth family was after she was given up for adoption when she was born.

But her cause found her at the centre of drama in the Square, as it was revealed that Cora, played by Ann Micthell, was her mother – making for a difficult reunion.

It all came to a head when Cora revealed she had to give up Ava as, back in the 60s it was difficult for a white woman to raise a black baby.

The mother-daughter duo worked hard to rebuild their relationship, with Ava eventually bringing her son Dexter Hartman, played by Khali Best, to Walford.

Ava and Cora came together to establish a happy extended family – until 2013 when the newcomer was offered a job in Newcastle and moved away.
